Why do you like working at Carbon Delta?

Working at Carbon Delta is a great opportunity for me to use my skills and knowledge to contribute to a more sustainable future.

Short Background

I’m originally from Vila Nova de Gaia in Portugal, just across the Douro river from Porto. After reaching adulthood I adopted a more nomad lifestyle and since then have lived in Lisbon, Cambridge (UK), Zurich, Geneva and now Zurich again. I’ve always been passionate about solving problems and growing up I enjoyed competing in all sorts of mathematics competitions. Nowadays I spend my free time traveling, doing sports and rejoicing in the beautiful Swiss nature! 🙂
