I was born in Switzerland and spent most of my time in close proximity to nature, which meant that I developed a curiosity and concern for environmental issues at a very young age. More recently in 2016, my passion for the environment was amplified while doing voluntary work in Haiti. During this experience, I witnessed how countries are affected by climate change. As one of the poorest countries on our planet, Haiti has very few resources to cope with and adapt to the effects of these changes.
I believe radical political changes are needed to tackle climate change all over the world. After earning a Bachelor’s degree in Economics, I therefore wanted to gain a better understanding of the inner workings of politics, which led me to work for the Swiss government for a year. In 2018 I started a Master's degree in Climate and Environmental Economics at the Graduate School of Climate Sciences in Bern and at the ETH in Zürich, Switzerland.
During my internship at GRID-Arendal I am working on the Blue Forests Project assisting with assessments and reports, as well taking part in several communications outputs for the project.
When I am not studying or working, I enjoy ski touring, kitesurfing, hiking, traveling and going to live music concerts.
