He comes originally from Switzerland where, before starting his academic career, he did a two-year apprenticeship as an organic farmer. He graduated from the University of Kassel in Germany with a BSc on ‘sustainable agriculture’, focusing on alternative protein sources and edible insects. He was awarded the Helmut Claas Scholarship and the Haecker prize for his bachelor thesis, and graduated with honours. In his MSc program at Wageningen University, he focussed on assessing sustainable and climate-smart agricultural systems, and on ecological agroecosystem modelling.
