Franziska Dettner studied Energy and Environmental Management in her Bachelor's and Master's degrees at the Flensburg University of Applied Sciences and the Europa-Universität Flensburg. As part of her studies, she spent two semesters in China at Ningbo University in Zhejiang, focusing on International Trade and Management and studying the Mandarin language. During her bachelor internship, she worked as an Energy Officer at An Taisce, the National Trust for Ireland in Dublin and wrote her thesis on possible policies and programmes to promote and establish energy efficiency in the Irish residential building sector. She completed the subsequent Master's degree in Flensburg in March 2018 and dealt with 'External Cost of energy generation in Morocco' in her final thesis, as a complement to the then ongoing MENA-Select project.

Since the beginning of 2019, Franziska Dettner has been working as a research assistant at the Interdisciplinary Institute for Environmental, Social and Human Sciences, Department of Energy and Environmental Management. Since then, she has worked on various research projects, deepening her knowledge in the topics of open energy system modelling, social aspects of the energy transition, development and evaluation of energy scenarios, capacity development, transformation of transport sectors and socially just energy systems. She is also active at the Institute in the areas of project acquisition and project management. She significantly contributed to the acquisition of the project 'Renewable Energy in the Water Sector in Jordan' - a cooperation of the European University Flensburg with the University of Jordan, IIASA and GIZ. From September 2019 to October 2020, she supervised this project as a data analyst and workshop leader and, together with colleagues, created an open energy system model for the energy and water sector in Jordan. The model was then presented to local decision-makers and employees of the Jordanian Ministry of Energy and Water in several workshops.

In addition, she independently acquired the EKSH-funded project 'Climate-neutral shipping for Schleswig-Holstein', in which the external effects of shipping emissions on the North Sea and Baltic Sea on the population of Schleswig-Holstein are to be quantified and future propulsion and fuel concepts are to be tested with regard to climate and environmental protection. She is working on this project as project manager and data analyst from the beginning of 2020 to the end of 2021. In winter semester 19/20, she took over the lecture 'Environmental Economics' for a group of international Master's students. Since mid-2020, she has been working on her doctorate in the overarching topic of 'Social costs of energy production'.
