I report on science, environment, cultures and exploration. I do my efforts to work side by side with scientists, research teams, and photographers. Through their eyes and experience, I may access surprising aspects of the natural world and culture. I share with the public the relationship between human hopes and our planet's cultural and natural resources.

2016 and 2017 I was granted of the Journalismgrant for reporting in development issues for two projects: Fistful of Shrimps and Shared Horizons. Earth journalism grant , in reporting on untold issues in climate change.

My stories have been published on media such as, but not limited to: Science, Wired, National Geographic, GEO, Vanity Fair, L'Espresso, Repubblica, El Pais, Die Zeit, Deutsche Welle, Krautreporter, The Huffington Post.
