She holds a MA Food Design & Innovation from Scuola Politecnica di Design in Milan and a BA Product Design from the Design Academy Eindhoven.

QUESTIONS
  • What gives you hope?
    Seeing the collective effort from artists, chefs, academics, scientists, and industry leaders in creating visions of a just future.

  • How does change happen?
    By people challenging the status quo, which then stimulates changes in our collective behavior.

  • What is the best advice you ever got?
    Nothing will ever be finished, ever be final, but always in constant state of evolution. That counts for you too.
