Management

Dr. David Jalilvand

I have worked on the dynamics between geopolitics, economics and energy in the Middle East for over 10 years and regularly travel to the region in this context.

In addition, I am Associate Fellow with the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP) and Research Associate of the Oxford Institute for Energy Studies. Between 2015 and 2018, I worked with the Friedrich-Ebert-Foundation in Berlin, where I led the Iran project amongst others. With a dissertation on the interplay between politics, economics and energy in Iran, I received a PhD (Dr. rer. pol.) from the Free University of Berlin. Before, I studied at Erfurt University, the Moscow State Institute of International Relations and the London School of Economics. I speak German, English and Persian.
