About Me

"Growing up in landlocked and mountain-dominated Switzerland did not preclude me from dreaming about the Ocean. On contrary, from early on I was fascinated by the underwater world. This passion has allowed me to start a very exciting and versatile journey."

One of the most influential life experiences was my time at the Bimini Biological Field Station (aka the Shark Lab) in the Bahamas. While working there first as a volunteer and later as a Master student, I learned skills that are vital for my work and life until this day...

And I am by far not the only one... Check out the Alumni Page for impressive and outstanding stories on how the Shark Lab has positively influenced and changed people's life.
