I obtained my BSc in agricultural science at the Nuertingen- Geislingen University (NGU) / Bern University of Applied Science (HAFL), where I developed a keen interest in intensive livestock farming and animal welfare. For this reason, I decided to join the Master's programme 'International Animal Welfare, Ethics and Law' at the University of Edinburgh. For my MSc thesis, I assessed laying hen welfare indicators on-farm using the MTool, as part of the 'Smart Animal Health Project' (FSVO & FOAG).
