I joined ETH Zurich to learn about human health, food engineering and agricultural systems. ETH Zurich taught me the think outside the box to solve problems and tackle challenges!
I joined The Bartlett CASA UCL to research how connected sensors, spatial models and network dynamics could help cities to become greener, and so provide healthy food to urban population.
I worked on FReSH protein pathway white paper, analysing models and quantifying environmental impact to guide the transformation of the protein sectors for businesses and industries.
Integrating sensors, microcontrollers and electric devices, I worked with mechanical engineers and plant scientists to automate vertical farming systems and optimise plant growth stages.
Gardens of Things Research! I join the Connected Environment Lab at The Bartlett, CASA UCL to research the integration of IoT and deep learning to monitor and maintain urban green spaces to support the ecological biodiversity and wellbeing of cities.
Growing up in Switzerland, I developed my passion for the natural world and my enthusiasm for technological innovation.
Visiting EPFL’s open doors and the Alimentarium Museum, I was fascinated by the creativity of engineers. Sliding down a mountain, eating milk chocolate and watching boats sailing on the Lake seem to be so natural, and at the same time required design, research and innovation. Exploring the continuous changing landscape of my country, I questioned how humans and nature could live in harmony.
My academic and professional journey strengthened my knowledge of human health, cities science, and electronics engineering. Combining these core technical skills, I strive to address the environmental and educational challenges that urban dwellers are facing. I believe, the integration of IoT devices into urban green spaces, will support local food production by allowing better management of urban gardens, encourage citizens digital literacy by giving them platforms to interact with their natural surroundings and assist urban nature researchers by sensing the flora and fauna.
My path has continuously nourished my curiosity for engineering and gave me the opportunity to explore new domains. I had the chance to meet passionate and inspiring people that encourage me to explore new domains. I look forward to sharing and discussing my research and projects with others, with the hope to motivate, teach and inspire for greener, healthier and sustainable cities.
