After almost two years at the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture, Dr. Glasenapp is returning to the Thünen Institute, where he was previously employed already.

Dr. Glasenapp studied wood science at the University of Hamburg and graduated with a PhD at the University of Hamburg in 2020. The focus of his research was the statistical analysis of wood energy use in the household sector in the context of renewable energy.
