This is me and my expertise
There are different factors that contribute to well-being for people and our planet. Most of these factors relate to our basic needs being fullfilled and other factors relate to what we need or desire as society to thrive. My expertise is to analyse and understand complex socio-economic systems and to identify solutions that are benefical to people, planet and the economy. These are not mutually exclusive, they are part of each other.

Research Associate and Lecturer for Sustainable and Circular Business Models, Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences, Germany
Business models are targeted towards different problems, different actors and customers, but most of all the system in which the problems occur and the various actors that need to take part in the problem formulation and solution-finding themselves. My job is to understand and merge these aspects to encourage a sustainability transition.
