Country: Switzerland

Learning is at the core of my work with science education and environmental sustainability projects. My experience is primarily with informal learning, organizational and group transformation and program evaluation approaches.

I am passionate about engaging people in making choices about their own learning and in promoting their thoughtful engagement in conserving and protecting the earth’s environments. Toward this end, I currently study and evaluate informal science education programs at the University of Teacher Education in St. Gallen, Switzerland. Before that I supported research of the Natural and Social Science Interface research team at ETH Zürich and served as lead editor to publish a book about environmental literacy. I also evaluated a middle school science teacher training program in Washington State that focused on bridging science and math learning. For me, cultural bridge-building is a key to sustainable development, a core aspect of my two-year service in the US Peace Corps; I taught Ecology and Teaching English as a Foreign Language courses at a Chinese university. I am a native English speaker who is conversant in German and holds Liechtenstein and U.S. citizenship.
