Amelie Finan

Get to know the members of our team!

As one of Moritz and Julian’s classmates, Amelie was a longtime supporter of Team Tumbleweed before finally joining in November of 2018. In the team, she has made it her goal to keep the work understandable for everyone who, like her, may not be a complete science genius.

What was your dream job as a child?

I went through lots of different phases, I wanted to be a cleaning lady, a hairdresser, an author and then the UN general secretary – and now I don’t know anymore!

Who inspires you/do you look up to?

Anyone who tries to make the world a better place, be it with a bigger project or just in their everyday life – making a change seems impossible when you feel like you’re insignificant being just one out of billions of people on a planet in an infinite universe, but when someone can break through that mindset and still act on what they believe in, I find that truly inspiring.

Where in the world do you most want to travel to?

I’d love to see an aurora borealis, so for that I’d have to go somewhere up north; or any lake or coast with bioluminescent dinoflagellates.
