Kerstin's research focuses on technological change and, more specifically, on technology transitions when incumbent technologies are replaced by emerging alternatives. Major applications of her work are climate technologies and substitution patterns in economic and technological networks. She has published empirical and theoretical work using macroeconomic, agent-based simulations, patent citation and input-output networks, and other applied empirical analyses. An overview of her research can be found on her Google Scholar entry. In her current role at the Turing Institute, Kerstin is exploring a novel data set based on granular financial transactions data of businesses in the UK.
