PhD Student @ chair of Circular Economy and Systems Innovation at the University of Hamburg.

My research focuses on the the design of circular value chains. I am also working on a project that seeks to support and accelerate the implementation of circular economic practices and the development of circular value networks through digitalisation and data sharing.


I graduated with a BSc in Economics from Jacksonville State University, Alabama, before obtaining my MA in International Business and Sustainability from University of Hamburg. Throughout my studies I had the pleasure to live in the USA (5 years), Colombia, Australia and England and genuinely the diversity of academia and am thankful for the experiences, memories and friends made along the way.
