Hi there! I am a sustainable fashion researcher and strategist currently based in Berlin, Germany. My work focuses on the analysis and mapping of fashion supply chains and the development of more environmentally and socially responsible sourcing strategies.

Main goal:
To educate brands and other industry stakeholders about the local practices, socio-economic conditions, and community concerns as it relates to the supply chains of the textile and fashion industry, thus allowing for more informed and sustainably-minded policy decisions to be made.

Recent Experience


Good On You (Sep 2019- Present)

Ratings Analyst working to maintain and update Good On You’s comprehensive database of ethical brand ratings, analyzing the ethical practices of fashion brands from all over the world, both large and small.

The vision of Good On You is a world where our consumer choices drive business to be sustainable and fair. It should be as easy to know how a brand performs on sustainability criteria as it is to know the price, style, and features of their products.

Good On You makes it practical for shoppers to make consumer choices that cause less harm to the planet, people and animals. The tools, including the free Good On You app, make it both dramatically easier and more appealing to make buy from brands that cause less harm or actually do good.


Responsible Sourcing Network (Jan 2019- Present)

Contributing Researcher for RSN’s Cotton Program which works to ensure cotton produced with forced labor does not make its way into garment and home goods supply chains. RSN aims to achieve this through two Cotton Pledge campaigns for companies to sign committing to not use Uzbek and Turkmen cotton and the YESS: Yarn Ethically and Sustainably Sourced initiative to drive slavery out of cotton production by implementing a due diligence verification program with cotton yarn spinners.

Master’s Thesis


The Sustainable Cotton Atlas (2018)

In partnership with hessnatur Stiftung, the thesis was developed as a decision-making tool, The Sustainable Cotton Atlas, that can aid fashion brands looking to shift their raw material sourcing towards more sustainable practices, and through doing so, empowering a brand to use their purchasing power to affect positive change in the countries and farming communities they source from.

Key questions:  How does one define sustainable cotton farming? What actions are being taken by specific countries and communities around the world to increase the usage and cultivation of sustainable cotton? What can a brand do to increase the cultivation of more sustainably grown cotton to better the lives of farmers and their communities as well as the environment?
