Amela Ajanovic is a Senior Researcher and Lecturer at the Institute of Energy Systems and Electrical Drives at Vienna University of Technology. She joined the Energy Economics Group (EEG) in 2003.

She holds a degree in electrical engineering and a Ph.D in Energy Economics. In 2016, she became Privatdozentin (equivalent to Associate Professor) in the field of Energy Economics.

She has been guest researcher at the Energy Research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN) in Amsterdam and at the International Energy Agency (IEA) in Paris, as well as a guest lecturer at the Technical University of Prague. Furthermore, she has acted as a guest, editor together with Carol Dahl and Lee Schipper, for a special issue of Energy Policy on " Modelling transport (energy) demand and policies".

Amela Ajanovic teaches classes and gives lectures on "Selected Topics in Energy Economics", "Energy Modelling and Energy Policy Analyses", “Energy Economics and Climate Change” and “Urban Living Labs”. She supervises master theses in the regular university study program as well as in the scope of the postgraduate MSc Program “Renewable Energy Systems”. She is also a member of the faculty and vice-head of this programme.

Amela Ajanovic has been involved in many national and international research projects as a project partner, as well as a coordinator. She is responsible for project acquisition, project leading, scientific coordination and research activities. Her main area of interest is sustainable energy systems, with special focus on the transport sector: energy efficiency, energy policy, energy modelling, and scenario development. In these fields of research she has published more than 20 papers in reviewed international journals (see publication list).
