Environmental Engineer Intern
I have graduated with a Meng in Chemical Engineering, and I am now finishing a MSc program in Interdisciplinary Studies in Economic, Social and Environmental Sustainability. Since my first years of university, I developed a strong interest in sustainability and climate change and worked as volunteer in numerous projects in the field. During my third year of studies, I worked on a research on the Life Cycle Assessment of the production of biodiesel from an Indonesia vegetable oil, in Toulouse, France. I had to analyse and quantify the environmental impacts of the biofuel production process, as well as the economic and social situation of Indonesia. I developed skills on environmental modelling analysis, and sharpened my critical thinking.
In my master I realized the importance of working with people from other natural and social sciences – only in this way innovation can deal with the numerous interconnected issues the world is facing today. I recently finished writing a dissertation project on the sustainability of social agricultural enterprises. I chose to work on this dissertation as it involves several topics of my interest: social entrepreneurship, agricultural sustainability, social justice and solidarity.
