My wide international experience in gender, urban transport and climate change is complemented by my communication skills and technical expertise.
Key skills include:

• Skilled in stakeholder engagement and communications
• Multi-cultural and bi-lingual (French/English)

Personal areas of interest include the green economy, sustainable development, gender, poverty alleviation, smart cities and alternative energies.
