Lea is an Associate for the Network Analysis Unit since February 2022, working on supporting the ECF’s teams with data analysis and research. Her work often relates to problem-solving, involving research skills and creativity, writing skills and communication.
From a German family, Lea grew up in France and feels truly European as a result. Fluent in French, German and English, she has also good knowledge of Italian, thanks to an Erasmus year spent at the Università di Bologna.
She holds a Bachelor’s degree in political sciences and a Master’s degree in sustainability policies from Sciences-Po Lille. Prior to joining the ECF, Lea was part of a research team focusing on the sustainability transition of port infrastructures in the Caribbean (Guadeloupe).
Outside of work, you can find her running or swimming. She also likes spending time with friends and discovering new places in Europe – especially if it involves hiking.
