In 2013, Tobias Massier joined TUMCREATE as Principal Scientist. He has been leading the Energy and Power Systems Group since then. Since 2022, he has also been serving as coordinator of the project “Singapore's Pathway to Carbon Neutrality – Analysis of New Technologies”.
Tobias established a team of researchers working on projects in the field of power and energy systems and electric mobility. Moreover, he defined new areas of research, acquired additional grant funding and established collaborations with partners from academia, governmental organisations and industry.
Before joining TUMCREATE, Tobias took on the role as university programme manager in 2009 to establish a new Master programme in Power Engineering (MSPE) at the Technical University of Munich that attracts more than 1000 applicants every year.
Tobias received his diploma (M. Sc.) and his doctoral (PhD) degree from the Technical University of Munich in 2002 and 2010 respectively. There, his research focussed on the structural analysis of analogue integrated circuits.
Tobias' research focuses on energy and power systems, particularly the integration of electric vehicles and renewable energies into the grid, as well as alternative energy supply options. For Singapore, this includes renewable options within in Singapore such as solar photovoltaics or geothermal power, but also import of electricity or other energy carriers to Singapore from other countries. The methods Tobias uses are energy and power system modelling as well as life cycle assessment.
