I have a background in international relations and history, and am currently working in EU public affairs. I am based in Brussels but have lived in Scotland and Canada. My main interests are European politics and history, energy and the environment, and East-Central European intellectual history.
Thanks to FutureLab Europe I have been able to engage in interesting debates across Europe and work together with a talented and diverse group of people with inspiring and innovative ideas.
Why do I think that Europe needs active citizens? The future of European integration is conditional on the awareness of the citizens who feel a sense of ownership of the Union as writers of its story and constructors of its identity. Building a united Europe starts with ourselves.
