Barbara completed her master's degree in earth sciences with a focus on hydrology at ETH Zurich and worked for a few months at the Institute for Atmosphere and Climate at the ETHZ. She has always been fascinated by glaciers and their role in a changing climate, and Alaska seemed the ideal place to study this for her PhD. At the moment, she works as a geophysicist in a small geology and energy consulting company, where she mainly deals with the use of geothermal energy.
