Ramim Ahadi

Curriculum Vitae

Ramin Ahadi is a doctoral researcher at the Faculty of Management, Economics, and Social Sciences at the University of Cologne, where he conducts research on operations management and information systems for sustainable mobility and energy systems at Professor Wolfgang Ketter’s Chair for Information Systems for Sustainable Society.

Ramin holds a B.Sc in Mechanical Engineering and a M.Sc in Industrial Engineering in Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, Iran, where he completed both as the top 5% of students. During his master level, he worked in the field of electric mobility and finished his master thesis titled “ Optimal locating of electric vehicle charging stations.”

Ramin gained profound knowledge in optimization and machine learning while doing his master thesis. After his studies, he worked as a researcher and a supervisor of Master students in SPOM Lab at Ferdowsi University of Mashhad.

In 2019, Ramin was awarded a doctoral scholarship at the Institute of Energy Economics at the University of Cologne (EWI). To pursue his doctoral research, in 2022, he joined Professor Ketter’s Chair at the University of Cologne, where his focus in on developing smart cities to facilitate sustainable energy and mobility's future. His primary interest lies in the next generation of shared, electric, and autonomous mobility platforms and their interactions with electricity sector. He contributes in the operations management of such complex socio-technical systems and designing large-scale stochastic decision support systems. Methodologically, his work employs simulation-based and analytical optimization techniques as well as advanced machine learning (reinforcement learning) models. Beside, he is also involved in behavioral research of tomorrow on-demand shared mobility platforms where user preferences play a key role toward a more sustainable system.

Ramin is a tutor for the Master’s course in “Advanced Analytics and Applications” (AAA) and the Bachelor’s course in “Advanced Seminar Information Systems for Sustain able Society”. He also supervises Bachelor’s, Master’s and MBA theses in his areas of expertise.
