Malte Oehlmann is a Project Manager at adelphi in the area of resources and nature conservation, with a focus on nitrogen reduction and the marine environment. For more than seven years he has been intensively engaged with the economic valuation of environmental goods and services.

Malte designs, coordinates and implements interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research projects for the German Federal Environment Agency and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Thanks to years of research activity, Malte has a strong analytical background and is familiar with various quantitative methods of empirical social research, with a special focus on population surveys and procedures for measuring expressed preferences. He is also experienced in the analysis and evaluation of measures for the reduction of air pollutants and nitrogen inputs.

Prior to joining adelphi, Malte worked in the field of landscape economics at the Technische Universität Berlin. In an interdisciplinary collaborative project, he analysed the equitable and efficient distribution of renewable energy and the expansion of the electrical grid in Germany. Malte also completed a long research stay at the Department of Resource Economics and Environmental Sociology at the University of Alberta (Canada). He also worked in order and program management at Volkswagen de México, Puebla and in the field of climate and energy at the Institute for Ecological Economic Research in Berlin.
