As community manager research for ENGAGE.EU I am fully dedicated to help you onboard and use this platform. If you have any questions, please reach out to me, I am happy to help :). I am also (co-)organizing events, conferences and seminars, and hosting community workshops during those events. 

I did a bachelor's in Organization Studies, with a master in Social Research which specialized in organizational ethnography. I conducted my master's thesis in Tanzania on a study on partnerships for sustainable development. Afterwards I worked at Erasmus University as a project officer on the same partnerships for sustainable development. In my free time, I love travelling, being outdoors with my kids and swimming. I'd be happy to meet you somewhere in Europe :)
