Thomas Pioch, M.A.
Thomas Pioch joined the team of Prof. Dr. Schiemann as a research associate and PhD candidate in October 2018. He has previously studied Socioeconomics (B.A.) and International Business and Sustainability (M.A.) at the University of Hamburg. Before that, Thomas studied linguistics in Heidelberg and worked as a freelance translator for several years. He has taught two Bachelor classes in Controlling at the Frankfurt School of Finance and Management.

He is currently investigating the effects of mandatory carbon emission disclosure regulations. His motivation lies in uncovering potential pathways towards climate neutrality for our economy.
