I want to wake up every morning to a mission. For me a job is not only something necessary to pay the bills. It is one part of who I am and, for that, I want to devote my time to things I care for. I currently work at EERA, the European Energy Research Alliance, that has given me the opportunity to combine three of my passions: science, clean energies, and communications. I want to believe that what I do everyday, brings us at least one micron closer to a carbon-neutral society.
