BSc in Agronomy with Major in International Agriculture, MSc in Life Sciences with Major in Sustainable Production Systems
I studied at the Swiss College of Agriculture where I graduated with a BSc in International Agriculture and an MSc in Life Sciences with specialization in sustainable production systems. During my career I have worked on different projects at the intercept between agricultural development and research, first based in Bangladesh, subsequently in Azerbaijan and Ghana. In both South Asia and the Caucasus I worked in the project management units for agricultural development projects involved in both operational and coordination activities of cross-sectoral projects which require a sound knowledge of development concepts.
I joined CABI in 2014 as a member of the Integrated Crop Management (ICM) team and as a support officer for the Plantwise programme. Within my activities in the Plantwise programme, I support its global coordination, contribute to monitoring and evaluation activities and support the implementation of Plantwise activities in target countries. As a member of the ICM team I support the implementation of ICM projects and provide specialist advice and technical knowledge.
CABI’s Swiss centre carries out applied scientific research and undertakes consultancy projects. Located in Delémont in the Canton of Jura, it is the home base for experts and students from several different countries where they research and apply their knowledge.
