Key Facts


Franz obtained his diploma degree for civil engineering at the Technical University of Vienna in 2004 and then worked at Linz Centre of Mechatronics, University of Linz, for eight months.  In 2010 he joined the Vienna Doctoral Programme on Water Resource Systems and graduated in 2014 with a PhD on, "Stochastic modelling of wind loads and their influences on reliability based design of wind energy converters," under the supervision of Prof. Christian Bucher. He then took up a post-doctoral research position at RWTH Aachen.
