Since 2020, I am working at Emschergenossenschaft and Lippeverband, Germany's largest water board, as Project Director of Emscherland, of the International Garden Exposition 2027 and of Emscher 2020. Professional experiences range from integral project coordination to the development of climate change adaptation strategies, the designing of public participation processes and the organization of (international) events. 

I am specialised in working on large scale green infrastructure programs, regional master planning and climate change adaptation in the city. As a lecturer at the Department of Spatial Planning, Technical University of Dortmund and at the Department of Geosciences, Ruhr University Bochum, I enjoy teaching a new generation of (international) city planners the possibilities of large scale green megaprojects. I further work as a counselor for international cooperations in both European and non-European countries with the focus on integral water management solutions and on transformative governance within public administration.

I hold a Master's Degree in Geography, French, Spanish and Portuguese and a PhD in Social Science. With more than 9 years experience in teaching at the university, I have a proven track record in research and development related to social inequalities, urban planning, strategic masterplan designing, public space and landscape creation across Germany and abroad.

My mission is to engage in a deeper dialogue with highly engaged program partners from different regions and countries in Europe in order to discuss sustainable solutions to city planning under the scope of climate change. I am fully devoted to capacity building and I love to bring together different cultures, perspectives and planning approaches within the overall process of project management.
