Conference Organizing Committee



I finished my BSc and MSc at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland with Quantitative Economics and Macroeconomic Policy orientations. I worked as a research assistant at the Swiss National Bank for a year before starting my Ph.D. at the Graduate Institute. My research interest covers monetary policy and international finance in connection with climate change.

In my spare time, I like to compensate for sitting in front of the computer with hiking, running, and horseback riding.

Driven by curiosity, I constantly seek new connections with individuals and ideas outside my field of study. I have a passion for discovering unique musical gems from various cultures and eras, with a particular bias towards jazz, and I enjoy taking analog photographs during my travels.
