Cuba, Finland, Austria – the holder of a degree in Human and Social Ecology loves international experiences. They ideally complement her additional practical education in Office Management.

Scientific work on ecosystem services and at the interface of energy and climate policies are as much part of her experiences as the work in a team at the WIFI Vorarlberg in the technical section.

Activities at five different universities during the last years give her an in-depth insight in academic education and in science projects.
