I obtained my MSc in Sustainability, Culture and Development (2014) from Durham University. Here I did fieldwork with hunters on the island of Malta to understand how conservation conflicts surrounding spring migratory birds could be solved. I subsequently worked at the Ministry of Sustainable Development, Environment and Climate Change (Malta) on international environmental issues at the European Council and UNEP. In 2016, I joined the chair group Animal Production Systems where I worked on the science-policy interface on the ''battle for biomass'' i.e. the competition for biomass, land and resources across food, feed, fuel and material uses. After obtaining my PhD in 2021 I was a researcher at Animal Production Systems working on education on how to achieve a circular bio-based society. I currently work at Corporate Strategy and Accounts in the Joint Programming Team where I work at the science-policy interface on bioeconomy topics. In particular, I work on Joint Programming Initiatives as the Joint Programming Initiative on Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change (faccejpi.net) and the ERA-NET Cofund for monitoring & mitigation of Greenhouse gases from agri- and silvi-culture.
