With my company klarFAKT e.U. I am working as a self-employed entrepreneur in the field environmental protection and climate change since 2020. I studied ‘Environmental Consulting – Waste Management and Disposal Techniques’ at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna and integrated also lectures from three other Universities in Austria, France and Australia. During my professional career at the Environment Agency Austria my focus broadened from waste management to climate change mitigation and adaptation. In various international projects I cooperated with the European Environment Agency, the European Commission and many countries. With my expertise I contributed for more than ten years to the European Topic Center for Climate Change Mitigation and Energy. Beyond that I am a certified review expert for the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). I speak German (mother tongue), English and French fluently.

It is very important for me to engage beside my international activities also in Austria, and contribute hereby to the necessary societal transformation. For this reason I enjoy to work with schools, companies and various interest groups and share my knowledge. My objective is to contribute to a better understanding of the urgency and complexity of global heating. Building upon that, I develop with my customers concrete measures and solutions. As only together we can change the future!
