Co-Founder & CEO @ SpeechifAI Inc
In my spare time, I write expert contributor pieces for Forbes covering civic technology innovations in Europe.
A bit about my background: in 2019, I obtained a Ph.D in Political Science from the Graduate institute, Geneva for a research on how American Presidents write their speeches. During the PhD programme, I was awarded the prestigious Albert Gallatin Fellowship in International Affairs and the Bakala Foundation Scholarship to spend the 2017-2018 academic year as a Visiting Scholar at the George Washington University.
Between 2013 and 2018, I was a cofounder and community development lead at GovFaces- a Geneva-based start-up for public deliberation and citizen engagement, with activity at the European Parliament, the United Nations, in Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
In recognition for my impact on the digital communications field, I was nominated on the Forbes Europe 30 under 30 list in Law and Policy in 2017, and Forbes Romania 30 under 30 list in 2018.
I am active in the entrepreneurship and media communities as a TEDx speaker, One Young World Peace ambassador, juror for the European Youth Award and a member of the National Press Club in Washington D.C.
