Junior Professor of Bioeconomy
University of Hohenheim

Jun.-Prof. Dr. Franziska Schuenemann is head of the Chair of Bioeconomy at the Institute of Economics at the University of Hohenheim since April 2020. She is also affiliated with the Kiel Institute for the World Economy. After studying economics in Mannheim, Bergen (Norway), Göttingen and Groningen, she obtained her PhD in Agricultural Economics in 2017 at the University of Hohenheim in Germany. While writing her thesis, she was also a collaborator at the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) in Washington DC. She focuses on integrated assessments of the Bioeconomy that simultaneously consider economic, social and environmental impacts and feedback effects of different drivers including policies, consumption patterns and market developments. For this, she employs global and country level computable general equilibrium (CGE) models that depict the structure of economies through consumption and production linkages based on market interactions. Most recently, she analyzes how drivers in the plant-based alternative sector at the producer- and consumer-side affect agri-food markets and global land use.
