Relatively recently I discovered the challenging and also satisfying métier of translation. Meanwhile, I pursue my action-oriented research into agroecology and food sovereignty, through various engagements. On the whole my working activities result from a life journey that has more of a quest than a career. My love of landscape, nature and hiking made me study Physical Geography. A longing for low-impact living and the art of simplicity brought me to remote places, yet I settled in the city. My love of language and meticulous attention to detail made me enjoy work as an editor. Curiosity and concern about science and technology as major forces in shaping society led me to become a researcher in Science & Technology Studies.
