Magister rerum naturalium in Biology, Specialization: Ecology and Botany, University of Vienna
Coming from a background in biology and sustainability management, I provide conceptual, research, writing and evaluation services for any project that benefits from a thorough and structured scientific approach. This includes reports, studies, project planning, evaluation, assessment or process planning. I have worked on a variety of subjects in the realm of nature conservation or development cooperation with conservation or sustainability aspects.
I have authored studies on climate change, illegal wildlife trade, water stewardship or industrial ecological footprints. More hands-on facets of my work have included proposals and evaluations for conservation and development projects in central and western Africa, setting up a monitoring and evaluation system for a protected area in Cape Verde, or helping businesses become more ecologically and/or socially sustainable in their operations. My methods include extensive literature research, data compilation and analysis or stakeholder interviews. I am a critical thinker, analytical and articulate, and am capable of working independently or within a multi-disciplinary team.
Personally and professionally, I am driven by a commitment to ecology and an interest in science. I am fascinated by all aspects of nature, from microbiology and chemical-physical processes to evolutionary biology. Trained as an ecologist, I perceive how the functioning of the natural world is interlinked with human social, political and economic activities. With my work, I seek to analyze and comprehensively present these interlinkages without oversimplifying.
