Lisa lives in Berlin and joins IOTA as a Human Resources Administrator. In her role, she will focus on mastering the administration of the Foundation with employees in more than 20 countries.
During her Bachelor in Economics at the University of Münster and Warsaw School of Economics, she discovered her passion for behavioral economics and game theory. To deepen her knowledge, she decided to take on her Master’s in Human Decision Science at Maastricht University. She wrote her thesis about cryptocurrencies in 2014 and also used cryptocurrencies to finance her studies. She has been fascinated by distributed systems and technologies ever since.
Once she completed her studies, she moved to Berlin and started her career as an Executive Assistant in a Tech Startup. Following her passion for people, she soon moved on to a Human Resources role in an IT infrastructure company, where she focused on recruiting and onboarding IT professionals. Given her interest in interpersonal relationships, she is currently doing training to become a certified mediator.
