In 2009, I finished my masters degree in glaciology, for which I researched winter precipitation on a glacier in New Zealand. I continued my education with a further MAS at the ETH in international collaboration and a PhD in sustainable development in agriculture in Nepal from the University of Bern. My studies have been driven by the love for the outdoors, the interest in climate change and its challenges and the compassion for the global community. Right now, I am working as a leader for international projects in disaster risk management.
Apart, I have studied yoga at a University in India and Australia since my early twenties, have participated in many meditation retreats and am a trained instructor for a variety of embodiment techniques. In addition, I am an integral associate coach and currently pursuing the professional coach module. In my free time, I love climbing, running and spending time in nature. I also love our plants and digging my hands in earth.
My motivation to work with the other women for this expedition is to share my experience and knowledge and what I love most with others and have an inspiring weekend out in the mountains.
