I hold a Joint Master’s degree in natural resource management and ecological engineering from Lincoln University, New Zealand and the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Austria.  I stepped into the development sector in 2010 through my work within a bilateral programme on livelihoods and forestry with DFID.
