Prior to that she worked as an independent consultant for data management and sustainability. Previously she held an appointment as consultant and lecturer for research data management at the ETH Library of the ETH Zurich for nearly five years. At the ETH Library, she was instrumental in developing best practices and guidance on data management plans as part of the swissuniversities national project DLCM (Data Life-Cycle Management).
