In my PhD project, I research the potential of nature-based solutions for resilient and equitable development in cities in Southeast Asia. The objective of my research is advancing tools that inform efficient infrastructure planning, by mapping flood risk, vulnerabilities, and ecosystem services.
Previously, I worked at the World Bank, the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, the German development agency GIZ, and multiple NGOs. On behalf of the World Bank, I supported the post-disaster needs assessment, recovery and, reconstruction after Cyclone Idai and Kenneth in Mozambique. I provided advice to the Government of Mozambique on the design of a National Disaster Risk Financing Strategy, strengthening the early-warning system, and mainstreaming disaster risk management in the National Agriculture Development Strategy and budget.
I completed Master’s degrees in Environmental Policy at Sciences Po Paris and in Political Science at FU Berlin. I am co-founder of The Policy Corner, an independent platform for students and young professionals to publish research-based articles on global issues.
