Team


Climanosco is powered by a small but enthusiastic team of interns, volunteers and staff. Huge thanks to everyone who has worked with us in the past to help make climate science accessible!

Current team

Jennifer Rodney
Strategic advisor, marketing and communications

I’ve spent over a decade in marketing and communications in the financial industry, working in the US, England and Switzerland. I’m excited to now put my skills to work in the area of climate science communication. I’m a branding, production and communications nerd with a lot of passion for the environment – and a lot to learn about climate science. I get to put that passion and learning curve to work, asking way too many questions to make sure Climanosco’s content is as understandable as possible, while ensuring our dedication to quality and accessibility is represented in all that we do.

Simon Steffen
Multimedia Production

I was born in Zurich, Switzerland, raised in Boulder, Colorado in the US and returned to Switzerland for graduate school. I have a master’s degree in climate sciences with an emphasis in economics. I also have a passion for video production and a strong belief in the power of media to spread knowledge and raise awareness of the changes that our environment is undergoing at the hands of our unsustainable development. This has led me to collaborate with Climanosco, producing videos to help people access and understand climate science by interviewing climate scientists, often on location, so they can share their research and stories with the world.

Angela Zollinger
Intern, YCFM coordinator

In the early years of my life I lived in the US and in England. In Zurich, Switzerland, my major in high school was music, but I always had a strong interest in the intersection of society, science and nature. This was also the focus of my thesis, “A Review of Relevant Swiss Stakeholder’s Positions on the Topic of Fracking”. I started my studies in Social Anthropology and Geography at the University of Fribourg, Switzerland, in 2015 with the goal to later build bridges between different disciplines and people of various backgrounds. After a year at the University of Bordeaux, France, I started my internship at Climanosco.

Fathima Abdul Rahman
Intern

Coming from India, where energy production and distribution is a huge challenge, I have always been interested in studying sustainable energy systems as a solution. Engaging in this field deepened my knowledge about the social and political impacts as well as the impacts on the environment. With a bachelor’s in Civil Engineering, I long to deepen my knowledge in sustainability and global energy issues and policies. To broaden my vision and experience, I joined Climanosco as an intern.

Lin Boynton
Volunteer, ArtSci

I came from Texas in the US to study biogeochemistry at ETH in Zurich, Switzerland. Though I am a Master’s student in Environmental Science, I grew up with a passion for both art and science – but they had always been separate. A few years ago, I realized that art and science are actually perfectly complementary and have been trying to find new ways to explore their intersection ever since. I love encouraging the communication of science to the public in creative ways, such as via art.

Pauline Béziat
Volunteer, ArtSci

Dóra Huszár
Volunteer

I am a biologist with a PhD degree from the University of Copenhagen, Denmark, committed to work on sustainability projects that combine environmental protection and social development. I truly enjoy conducting desktop research, writing, and coordinating projects and I have gained such experiences at international NGOs (WWF, BirdLife). I have joined Climanosco as a volunteer to support a community-rooted climate research initiative in Mexico. Its aim is to create a dialogue between climate scientists and local people that will help to identify urgent and important research questions. I am Hungarian, currently living in Zürich, Switzerland.
