Ridvan Aydin

Ridvan Aydin supports the Borderstep team as a master’s student in the CO 2030 project.

Ridvan is completing his master’s degree in industrial engineering with a focus on energy and resources at the Technical University of Berlin. He is particularly interested in the fields of renewable energies, energy economics, process management and strategies for sustainable development.

Prior to this, Ridvan completed a Bachelor’s degree of the same name at the University of Augsburg, specializing in Materials Resource Management. His studies focused on lightweight construction, sustainable materials, ecological chemistry and operations research. In addition to his work at the Borderstep Institute, Ridvan is a working student at Hanwha Qcells and provides support in the B2C segment. He has also already gained experience in divisional management.

Data traffic and power consumption in the telecommunications infrastructure will increase significantly. This will create new opportunities to utilize the waste heat generated. Ridvan wants to contribute to a sustainable energy supply and is therefore developing various waste heat utilization concepts at aggregation and core locations in the CO 2030 project as part of his master’s thesis. He is investigating various scenarios and proposed solutions for network nodes.

Fascinated by languages and different cultures, Ridvan enjoys spending time abroad. He studied Industrial Engineering & Management at Pusan National University in Busan from 2019-2020.

In his free time, Ridvan plays soccer for SV Solidarität. He also enjoys playing darts, billiards and table tennis. In Berlin, he is always on the lookout for exciting and new food spots with a wide variety of cuisines.
