Research - Deniz Ozkan


My research mainly focuses on economic, financial, cost and risk analysis of energy systems including sustainability, climate change, electricity markets, environmental issues and policy perspective. Major aim of my studies is to close the gap in integrated analysis of complex systems by bringing the theory and practice together on an interdisciplinary platform.
