Growing up hiking and climbing in the Swiss Alps I developed a deep love for the mountains early on. I quickly became aware of the stunning changes reshaping the glaciated landscapes I had come to adore. Today I study these changes, in particular how the danger from rock fall and landslides is increasing in mountain areas around the world. To this day, the mountains are where I recharge my batteries and I've developed a soft spot for climbing frozen waterfalls. My most powerful mountain experiences are most often in all-female teams, which is why I immediately jumped at the opportunity to support Inspiring Girls Expeditions. Currently, I am a PhD student at the University of Colorado in Boulder, where I have joined the team to get Girls on Rock started in Colorado.
