Short CV

Environmental scientist with a PhD in Marine Sciences. I have researched ocean sciences for more than 10 years along all continents and oceans. Currently, I help to address scientific and environmental issues by building bridges between science, society, and politics. I am firmly convinced that scientists must play an essential role in the current context of global change in terms of advising, management, communication, and policy/politics.
