The Ecological Bohemian

Jackie B

Jaclyn, aka Jackie, is a MSc student from California, USA. She studies Agriculture Science and Resource Management for the Tropics and Subtropics (ARTS) at the University of Bonn, Germany.

Jackie did her B.S. in Animal Science at California Polytechnic University and recently carried out her master's thesis experiment in Sustainable Nutrition for Aquaculture at FiBL Research Institute for Organic Agriculture in Switzerland.

Last year she helped host Tropentag in Bonn and it was an exciting, insightful experience. Because she loves science and bringing passionate people together, being a student reporter for Tropentag 2018 seemed fitting. With such a diverse spectrum of attendees, she believes it is pivotal to capture the highlights and impressions of the conference; from experts, to young scientists and students alike. She looks forward to illustrating the various presentations and genuine interactions throughout the conference.

With scientific knowledge transfer at the foundation for success in understanding the world and each other, she hopes that Tropentag 2018 can show that universities are playing a great role in the quest for sustainable and inclusive development in agriculture.

With that being said, here are a couple of fun facts about Jackie:

1. She is left-handed

2. She loves to draw and paint

When she is not being a student or doing an internship at the GIZ, you can find her frolicking in mountain lakes or dancing until sunrise in the urban jungles.
