Derck Koolen is an academic researcher with a PhD in Energy Economics at the Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University and is affiliated as a visiting research fellow with the London Business School. His research focuses on a quantitative analysis of strategic decision making, risk preferences and sequential pricing in decarbonizing power markets with renewable energy sources. Following a multi-method approach, the impact of a high integration of intermittent renewable energy sources is assessed in terms of rationales for forward trading, the value of flexibility and market efficiency in relation to the design of electricity markets. Derck has been a visiting scholar at Haas School of Business, University of California Berkeley and Warrington College of Business, University of Florida.

Derck is involved in teaching courses for MBA and MSc students and has supervised over 20 master thesis projects with practical relevance. He has served as an advisor for RSM teams in international business case competitions and has experience as freelance writer and consultant offering expertise in energy and climate economics, power market design, and technology & innovation policy. Derck holds a Master's degree in Energy Engineering from the University of Leuven and has worked as an energy economist for a German grid operator.
