As a sustainability expert, I work with enterprises, institutions and networks to get them to think through their strategies on business and sustainability, for them to stay competitively relevant in their fragmented landscapes.

I am serving as Director at Solved, a Finnish company that provides a global online marketplace for sustainability-related knowledge work where one can find, hire and work with experts-on-demand to create smart, sustainable and resource-efficient solutions. Currently, I also work as a Core Team Member of NELIS (Next Leaders’ Initiative for Sustainability), a Japanese-based network that empowers next-generation leaders on the future of sustainability. Additionally, I hold a position as a Counsellor of the Belgium-based International Board of Business Owners and Entrepreneurs (Entreps) for Leadership.

My previous engagements as an analyst and project manager have been with the International Business Leaders Forum in London, the European Commission in Belgium and ETH Zurich, among others. To prepare for this, I studied at College du Saint-Esprit in Mauritius, the National University in Singapore and the Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden. 

I also frequently write and speak on the nexus of sustainability, leadership and entrepreneurship in Asia, Europe and Africa, regularly mentor incubators & universities and sit as a jury member in international competitions. 

I speak English and French, and during my free time I enjoy assisting in the Olympic Games.
