My passion for the environment started during my childhood, spending many hours in Tanzanian national parks. In 2014 I travelled to Australia to study Environmental Management at James Cook University, where I was lucky enough to dive the Great Barrier Reef and the Coral Sea.
This is what prompted my interest in marine ecosystems, which is why I decided to do a M.Sc. in Coastal Ecology at the University of Agder. In 2018, I started working at GRID-Arendal as a Communications Officer. Following my MSc graduation in 2020, I am now working on a range of exciting projects focusing on marine ecosystems across the world.
I have a major passion for scientific communication and believe that this is a key aspect of making a positive impact on the world. I am lucky enough to be part of this through projects such as the Norwegian Blue Forests Network (NBFN), Blue Solutions, PANORAMA and Nordic Blue Carbon. My role at GRID-Arendal involves creating content, conducting research, developing websites as well as being engaged in outreach activities and planning events.
