My back­ground is envi­ron­men­tal engi­neer­ing and agroe­co­log­i­cal research. I did my doc­tor­al research on agroe­co­log­i­cal crop­ping sys­tems and wrote my the­sis on their envi­ron­men­tal and social impacts. My research aimed at enabling farm­ers to tran­si­tion to regen­er­a­tive and agroe­co­log­i­cal crop­ping sys­tems. I want­ed to fill the gaps (tech­no­log­i­cal and finan­cial) that I found dur­ing my research that were hin­der­ing the main­stream­ing of agroe­co­log­i­cal sys­tems. That is why when I met my co-founders in an online fel­low­ship (EIT Food Inno­va­tors Fel­low­ship), my idea was to build a deci­sion sup­port sys­tem for farm­ers to enable them tran­si­tion to regen­er­a­tive agri­cul­ture. I found com­ple­ment­ing com­pe­tences in my future co-founders which ulti­mate­ly led us to found Cin­SOIL. Pre­vi­ous­ly, I have led research projects in the fields of diver­si­fied farm­ing, AI-based solu­tions in agri­cul­ture, dig­i­tal deci­sion sup­port sys­tems, and soil health edu­ca­tion at the Ham­burg Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy. Most recent­ly, I was on the expert pan­el for the FAO’s State of the Food and Agri­cul­ture 2023 report.
