Areas of expertise

Environmental and Climate Policy, Sustainable Business Practices, Emissions Accounting

“The interest in sustainability issues and especially mitigation of climate change arose originally from nature documentaries that I watched at young age. Later in life these documentaries describing the vast impacts of human activities on nature guided me to study biology and environmental sciences. Later on, the perspective of natural sciences changed into more societal view that meant immersing into environmental and climate politics and sustainable business practices. Eventually this path led me to Gaia where I will be working especially with environmental and climate policy and management solutions, sustainable business opportunities and emissions accounting.

At Gaia I am inspired by the innovative and experienced working community that transforms the science of sustainability into concrete solutions.”
