Personal profile

Research interests

At AMSIB I supervise thesis and internship students, mentor and teach leadership, cross-cultural management, and coordinate and teach our 1st year course on Ethics, Responsibility and Sustainability. The PUMP-PRME-funded research project I co-established on Sustainable Leadership for Climate Resilience in the Northern Temperate Atlantic Bioregion presented its first round findings in July.

My recently published chapter “Building a Better Ark: The Potential of Engaging Cultural Thought Leaders and Addressing Power Differential in Authentic, Community-Driven Resilience Planning” in Palgrave’s Handbook of Climate Resilient Societies discusses the theory and practice of my three Sustainability and Resilience Fellowship in my native California (2017-2020). During this time, I taught Socially Responsible Business during this time and worked as part of a research team on the ties between organizational trust and resilience in the face of natural disaster.  In 2021 I returned to the Netherlands where I both worked in tech and experiential design and defended my interdisciplinary PhD on how worldviews shape our understanding of climate change as a concept and limit the range of solutions we are willing to consider to address it (my academic home is in communication). I am a bi-lingual, dual citizen (NL-EU/US). Through my private, non-profit and academic practice, I have designed and facilitated many charrettes, stakeholder engagements and debates.
