Prof. Dr. Malte Jaensch
Having been witness to the rise of e-mobility from early days on, Prof. Jaensch is committed to understanding and shaping sustainable mobility as the world transitions towards a carbon neutral future. His research interests span wide, from component level research and system level development to broader questions concerning the optimum path towards sustainable mobility and how it’s affected by the nature of energy generation, storage and transportation.
Prof. Jaensch holds a degeree in mechanical engineering from TU Braunschweig, an MBA from Imperial College Business School and a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Imperial College London. Upon completion of his studies he co-founded EVO Electric, an electric motor start-up. After ten years in the UK, in 2013 Prof. Jaensch moved back to Germany to establish, grow and manage the electric drivetrain department at Porsche Engineering.
Since 2021 he is heading the Chair of Sustainable Mobile Drivetrains at TU Munich.
