I completed my B.A. at Franklin University Switzerland and M.A. at the University of Mannheim. I am currently undergoing my second M.A. at Humboldt University focused on social science research methodology.
My journey into youth work research began as Researcher at Youth Policy Labs.  I am a Research Advisor for Amplifying Youth Voice, a transatlantic project that seeks to amplify youth voices in the search for sustainable solutions to gender inequality, climate change and violent extremism.
I have contributed to discourse at Youth and Citizenship in the European Union, Latin America and the Caribbean Seminar, in which I was presenter on the future role of youth in political participation.
Presently, as part of Research-based analysis of European youth programmes (RAY), I am a contributor to the collaborative research project on the impact of the Corona Pandemic on Youth Work in Europe.
