Max Didier holds a MSc degree in Civil Engineering from ETH Zurich, with focuses on Construction Management and Structural Engineering. He was awarded by the ETH with the Willi Studer Price and the ETH medal for his Master Thesis “Time-Varying Resilience of Electric Supply Systems”. During his studies he followed a semester at UC Berkeley and participated in projects focusing on community impact, e.g. the impact of different urban scenarios in Colombia.
In 2014, Max Didier started his doctorate on the topic of seismic vulnerability of the Swiss built environment at ETH IBK as part of the NRP70 project “Supply of electricity for 2050: hydropower and geo-energies” under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Bozidar Stojadinovic. His research areas and interests concern the resilience of deep geothermal energy and hydropower, especially their impacts on community resilience.
