André Müller supports adelphi’s project teams as a research analyst focusing on the topic of water. The focus of his work concerns comprehensive market and political analysis as well as feasibility studies for promoting the uptake of innovative water technologies and water management approaches.
Prior to joining adelphi, André gained extensive practical experience within the fields of environmental protection and international development cooperation. He worked for Waterwise, the UK’s leading institution in the area of water efficiency. He also worked for the Federal Agency for Nature Conservation (BfN) on the Baltic island of Vilm, Germany, and volunteered for Reignite, a UK-based charity with community development projects in Cameroon. As part of the research project Young Cities at the Technical University of Berlin, he investigated the causes and consequences of water scarcity issues in the MENA region.
During his work with the non-profit organisation TECHO in El Salvador, he conducted research on rainwater harvesting practices in marginalised rural communities. André is also a co-founder of 180 Degrees Consulting Berlin, a pro bono student consultancy for social enterprises and non-profit organisations.
André studied Water: Science & Governance at King’s College London where he focused on ecological aspects of managing international rivers. He further developed his knowledge on this topic as a graduate research assistant and through fieldwork training in the Okavango Delta, Botswana. In his dissertation, André examined, in cooperation with the WWF UK, success factors for implementation of environmental flows in the Orange Senqu river basin. He also participated in a six-month educational programme in Design Thinking at the Hasso-Plattner-Institut in Potsdam, Germany.
