Dr. Marc-Fabian Körner is co-leading a research group at the Research Center Finance & Information Management (FIM). Moreover, he is postdoctoral researcher at the Branch Business & Information Systems Engineering of the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Information Technology (FIT) and the University of Bayreuth. In addition, he is involved in teaching in the Finance & Information Management program in cooperation with the Technical University of Munich and at the Digital Leadership Academy.

In research, teaching and practice, Marc-Fabian is mainly engaged in two main areas of Information Systems (IS), namely Green IS as well as related topics of energy informatics and data spaces and digital identity management in enterprises and public institutions.

In the field of Green IS, Marc-Fabian is looking, among others, at how digital technologies can contribute to the decarbonization of the mobility sector, the energy industry, or manufacturing processes to contribute to the deep-decarbonization: in various research projects, he investigates how digital proofs of origin and of use of CO2 can enable companies to implement CO2-adaptive process management and at the same time create corresponding transparency for end consumers. Applying the wide range of IS research methods, Marc-Fabian also researches (market) strategies for balancing electricity supply and demand as well as corresponding operational decision support systems for enterprises.

To further develop the possibilities of digital data exchange for enterprises, Marc-Fabian, moreover, analyzes design options for data spaces that arise from digital technologies (e.g., AI, zero-knowledge proofs, etc.) and decentralized concepts (e.g., self-sovereign identities, blockchains). In detail, Marc-Fabian investigates the applicability and benefits of data spaces and digital identity management in a variety of application areas – from use in public administration to the use of machine identities in companies in the context of Industry 4.0 and the application in the course of decarbonization.

Marc-Fabian regularly publishes his research in renowned international scientific journals and at international conferences. Close foreign research collaborations exist, for example, with the University of Cambridge, the University of Luxembourg, the Norwegian School of Economics, or with the University College London. Marc-Fabian is also active as a reviewer for various journals and conferences. In addition, he is involved in various research and industry projects in the above research fields. Marc-Fabian integrates findings and insights from these projects directly into his teaching and research. With corresponding practice transfer studies, he contributes to making the latest research findings applicable in close collaboration with industry partners.

Since 2015, Marc-Fabian has been employed at the Research Center FIM, the University of Bayreuth and the Branch Business & Information Systems Engineering of the Fraunhofer FIT, most recently as research assistant as well as project manager, and since 2021 additionally as co-head of department. He received his doctorate (summa cum laude) from the University of Bayreuth with a dissertation on the role of information systems for increasing flexibility in electricity grids. Previously, he studied economics and business administration as well as philosophy as a minor at the Universities of Erfurt and Bayreuth as well as at EDHEC Business School (France).
