I strongly believe that science-engineering-human-nature are interwoven networks creating unity which must be kept in balance for all those networks welfare, durability and evolution.
Since 2008: Environmental Engineering Institute (IIE), Executive & personal assistant to IIE director, administrator & translator, and Ecological Engineering Laboratory (ECOL), Executive & personal assistant to Prof. D. Andrew Barry and his ECOL group.
Assistance also to: Atmospheric Particle Research Laboratory (Prof. Satoshi Takahama) ; Research group Prof. Christian Ludwig (PSI joint professorship), Central Analytical Laboratory (Dr Florian Breider, previously Dr Felippe de Alencastro), Laboratory of Environmental Toxicology (Prof. Kristin Schirmer), Centre Ecotoxicologie EAWAG-EPFL.
I joined EPFL in 1998 after some 15 years as consultant, translator for services and international companies as well as personal assistant positions (F-Eng-It-Ger) to international import-export companies in Europe & Middle East.
Since the very beginning, I assisted and still do assist a number of interesting personalities who lead a wide range of always expending and evolving research activities. Thus, I acquired a large experience on the complexities of academic life which was initially totally new to me.
On a more personal level, I am curious of what surrounds me, enjoy harmony, good humor and learning. I commit myself to those tasks assigned to me or those I undertake considering all parties concerned before acting.
