I was raised in a family with a long tradition of interest in biology and medicine, especially on my father's side. From a very young age, I was encouraged to observe nature and learnt how rewarding it was.
Graduated with a Major in Air & Space, I worked for 14 years as an engineer in the Aeronautical Industry. However, keeping a strong interest in nature, I decided to take a professional break for one year to get a Master's Degree in fundamental Ecology.
Simultaneously, I have been an avid traveller, visiting Taiwan for the first time in 2010 and coming again in 2014 to learn Chinese.
I have always been struck by how western and eastern landscapes shaped by humans differ so much.
