In my role as a Research Fellow at Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn, I specialize in project management, ensuring economic and financial sustainability for initiatives focused on ocean conservation. My background in international relations and sustainability has allowed me to contribute significantly to high-level policy-making during my tenure as a Bluebook Trainee at the European Commission. Additionally, my experience in Malta showcased my adeptness in stakeholder coordination and data-driven reporting. My passion for sustainability is evident in my current role, where I emphasize economic viability in projects for responsible ocean governance, making me a valuable contributor to marine conservation efforts.
