About Me

I am a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Inter- and Transdisciplinary Research group (ITD) and responsible for interdisciplinary knowledge integration in the project "Evidence-based Transformation in Pesticide Governance" (Trapego). This involves the development of a conceptual framework, scientific synthesis, and stakeholder interactions. I currently conduct research on the use of science in policy and practice for sustainability, inter- and transdisciplinary collaboration, and pesticide governance. Other research interests include the role of business and innovation in the international environmental regulation, ocean governance and maritime industries, and Swiss-EU energy relations. I have experience in the moderation and facilitation of workshops and events at the intersection of science, policy, and practice.
