I am currently responsible for institute coordination and strategy at the Institute for Ecological Economy Research in Berlin and coordinate the research partnership Ecornet Berlin, an association of five leading sustainability research institutes working towards a social and ecological metropolis. My areas of expertise include sustainability strategies at national, regional and local levels, whole sector transformation ( i.e. energy, agriculture, transport), science and innovation policy and technology assessment.
From 2018 -2020 I was a freelance consultant in sustainability and digital public policy. Before that (2014-2018), I was a consultant at the Berlin-based think tank adelphi, working on Germany’s sustainability strategy and transformation pathways of major socio-technical systems towards a green economy.
I am also a co-founder of Maastricht University Green Office, a student-run university department implementing sustainability projects, rootAbility, a non-profit company working to transform the European higher education sector by promoting the Green Office Model, among us, an association financing accommodation for refugees, as well as a sustainability focused cultural center and festival series.
I studied philosophy, sociology, politics and sustainability science in Maastricht, Netherlands and Santa Cruz, California (B.A., 2012), and global studies in Freiburg, Germany, Buenos Aires and New Delhi (M.A., 2014). I also hold an off-site MicroMasters Degree in Statistics and Data Science from MIT (2020).
