Kirsten Sophie Hasberg earned a Master of Science degree in Economics from the University of Copenhagen in 2009. She has more than 10 years of experience in the Danish and German energy sectors, including employment with the Danish Transmission System Operator Energinet and with parliamentary groups of the Danish Folketing and the German Bundestag. As an independent consultant, she has advised organizations like Siemens Transmission, Mercedes Benz R&D North America, as well as the Danish District Heating Association, and evaluated grant applications for the European Horizon 2020 program and the Irish Disruptive Technologies Innovation Fund. From 2016 to 2018, she played an active role in the Berlin blockchain-in-energy startup scene. Her teaching portfolio includes energy transition-related courses at the University of Kassel in Germany and the University of Roskilde in Denmark, as well as an information systems-related module on Digital Technology and New Business Models at the IT-University of Copenhagen. As a science communicator, she engages in art/science crossovers and has co-produced podcasts, a documentary film, and music. Most recently, she co-performed a climate lecture concert at the Roskilde Festival 2019. From 2017 to 2020, she was a PhD fellow of the Sustainable Energy Planning research group at Aalborg University in Copenhagen where she took part in the Energy Collective research project lead by the Technical University of Denmark, out of which her PhD dissertation has emerged.

Research interests:
- New economic thinking (institutional and ecological economics)
- Philosophy of technology (Martin Heidegger, Ludwik Fleck, Renata Salecl) and techno-anthropology
- Questions of power and ignorance in energy and information systems (energy and data democracy)
- Data ethics of the energy transition (surveillance capitalism in energy systems)
- Developing transdisciplinary mindsets in research

Kirsten Sophie Hasberg successfully defended her PhD on power/ignorance in energy and information systems on June 10, 2020.
