Born in Germany and educated in Germany, the UK, Portugal and Spain, Daria has found her passion in leading the Swiss spacetech start-up Wegaw as CTO.
Enthusiastic about sustainability, innovation, building great teams, and making the world a better place, she works at the interface of tech and business to find innovative ways to leverage spatial data for a green and renewable energy. So far, she has led projects on three continents and collaborated with the European Space Agency.
With her international background and her desire to make W+G’s mission to build an inclusive community of change makers a reality, she is representing W+G as Regional Ambassador for Western Europe since 2021 and volunteers on the Communications and Mentorship teams since 2020.
Joining W+G in 2019 as part of the first mentorship cohort, Daria has since devoted much of her time to building the European community by founding the Swiss meetup Geo Geneva and speaking at multiple European events.
Daria holds an Erasmus Mundus master degree in Geospatial Technology from three European universities (DE, PT, ES) and a Geography degree obtained in Germany and the UK.
