Career story:  After my master’s degree in Atmospheric and Climate Sciences at ETH Zürich, I worked part time at ETH Zurich for the CH2018 project where the new climate scenarios for Switzerland were developed. Since I enjoy teaching, I completed the teaching diploma in geography at the same time. Currently, I’m working as a research assistant at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences at the Centre for Aviation.
