I am currently reading for the MSc in Nature, Society and Environmental Policy at the University of Oxford, having recently graduated from Witten/Herdecke University's Philosophy and Cultural Science programme with a focus on Sustainable Economics and Management. My research focuses on disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation. The policy implications of my research concern the governance of regions at risk. My concern is to explore plausible futures where a complex of vulnerability tips into a humanitarian crisis.

I currently live and work part-time in Geneva, Switzerland. My mother is Swiss-Romansch and my father from Guinea, West Africa. I grew up in Kansas, USA and studied French at the University of Kansas. I believe that it is our duty as citizens of this planet to help one another. In my opinion, the more fortunate must help the less fortunate. And I strongly believe that by helping one person we help others because our actions inspire the actions of others. I believe we are all connected; I help others, as I would help my own family and loved ones. What I do for someone else has a direct and an indirect affect on me, my family and all of those I come into contact with (or not). I also think we must not judge or preach to others, or force our beliefs on them. Love is unconditional!
