What do you do?
I am a researcher looking at sustainability activities and how we can foster them in society.
Why did you choose this field?
I am a curious person and as a city kid, I was interested in studying the "unknown" the environment because it made absolutely no sense to me why we were overusing our resources. Later, I realized I was also motivated by my grandfather who held a deep relationship with the land around him and that we didn't consider that enough in our research on how to manage land/ the environment/ nature.
What do you look at and think, "I wish younger me would have known this was possible"?
Being happy without fulfilling societal expectations on me as a woman - pursuing an academic career, moving countries, and being happy without the traditional expected status symbols.
Why do you love working in STEM?
Asking the questions I am curious about and being allowed to follow up my thoughts.
Best advice for next generation?
Own it and don't believe anyone who suggests that there is 'one' way.
