Short biography: Morten Lybech Thøgersen, a passionate advocate for renewable energy and the Head of Software Development Department at EMD International A/S in Denmark (EMD), is at the forefront of windPRO software development. His love for Agile methods in software development is evident in his commitment to creating user-friendly software that integrates data and models to deliver significant enduser value. Currently leading a team of 15 talented software developers, Morten’s research interests are deeply rooted in applied methods. These include data analysis, probabilistic methods and loads, global reanalysis data, GIS and land-surface data, machine learning, big data, and high-performance computing. His expertise in these areas is particularly relevant to the modelling of renewable energy in cold climates. Before joining EMD back in 2001, Morten contributed to the scientific community as a researcher at Risø National Laboratory, now known as DTU Wind Energy. His work there laid a solid foundation for his current role and continues to inform his approach to software development and data analysis. Outside of his professional life, Morten is a devoted family man who enjoys spending time with family and friends. An avid sports enthusiast, he can often be found running or engaging in various water sports, whether in the frozen or liquid state, including sailing, scuba diving, kite surfing, and snowboarding. His love for these activities, particularly those in cold climates, mirrors his professional interest in cold climate modelling of renewable energy.
