Dr. Korytarova completed her PhD in May 2010.  Her dissertation focuses on energy efficiency in public buildings, case study Hungary and presents several alternative low-energy pathways for 2030. The thesis shows the importance of deep retrofits, the planning of the transition towards low-energy future through gradual improvement of minimum requirements for building renovation as well as the risk related to the massive renovation to the suboptimal level of retrofit, which is demonstrated by quantifying the lock-in effect.

Before commencement of her PhD studies at CEU, Dr Korytarova worked in an energy consultancy Ecofys on energy efficiency and at the International Institute for Applied System Analysis (IIASA) in Laxenburg, Austria in the field of sustainable consumption. She worked also as an intern at the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy and Institute for European Environmental Policy (IEEP).
