I am a consultant and researcher in sustainability and digital public policy, currently working on new ideas about how the digital transformation may be turned into an opportunity for sustainable development and political participation.
From 2014 to 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. Somewhat disillusioned by the inertia of the political system, as well as the hamster-wheel of government-commissioned project work, I left this position in March 2018 to pursue further studies and develop new projects outside of the ministerial framework.
I am also a co-founder of a squat-based cultural center, a festival series and a participatory journalism platform, an association financing accommodation for refugees, as well as a non-profit company working to transform the European higher education sector.
I studied philosophy, sociology, politics and sustainability science in Maastricht, Santa Cruz, Freiburg, Buenos Aires and Delhi, and am currently pursuing an Off-Site Degree in Data Science at MIT.
