Hello! That's me:

I'm a German-Italian vegetation ecologist and PhD student at the Ecosystems Lab at the University of Oxford.


After researching urban ecology in Berlin, I now expanded my focus to tropical ecosystems and to their conservation and restoration. 


I'm intrigued by tropical mountain biodiversity and study the interactions between climate change, land use and biodiversity. For my PhD I use satellite data and field work to track vegetation recovery and change in tropical mountains with the goal of developing restoration and conservation interventions backed by the best possible science.

As a triathlete, and an Ex-National team rower I now direct my diligence, determination and endurance to conservation of mountain restoration science.

I am fluent in five languages, enjoy creative plant-based cooking and my favourite animal is the red squirrel!
