Im a mathematician and physicist from Vienna, Austria.
My research interests include mathematical optimization, mechanism design, artificial intelligence and the planning of economic systems.
I work in a field called energy economics, which concerns the planning of energy systems, however im particularly fond of the the application of mathematical optimization to economic planning.
Im convinced, that any larger scale economic planning will require some form of formal modelling, automated information processing system and mathematical optimization. I would love to discuss the interface of these issues.
My introduction to Parecon was a gradual one, moving from non-formal theories over Paul Cockshotts work to Parecon. My interest in Parecon is mostly due to it explicitness. I feel that there is a grave lack of detailed and specific alternative models for society. In my opinion only explicitly spelled out models can be analysed and refined.
My political roots are in the grass-roots organizing approach of the german speaking “Autonomen” movement.
Please feel free to approach me if you are intersted in similar topics or want to be hosted by a comrade when travelling through Vienna!
