My name is Tsilla Boisselet, I was born and raised in France and Austria, and lived in several countries in Europe and outside. I am an environmental scientist, a wife, mother and sister, and a fervent learner and teacher, with a passion for nature, languages, recycling and geography. My drive to see the whole picture and understand the complexity of interactions motivated my choice to dive into the environmental sciences professionally. The ecology is indeed the crossing point of applied chemistry, biology, physics and geology, and influences also many aspects of human activity. Apprehending the world as an ecosystem with the human in it spurs me to embrace (bio)diversity, balance and cooperation.
I believe ecological issues are deeply linked to human activities and therefore solutions come from connecting human needs with environmental stability. So, as cooperation rimes with solution, and social rimes with environmental, I dream of finding creative solutions for environmental sustainability by re-establishing soils and developing connections, from flora over microorganisms to human beings. I love to associate things that do not have obvious links, I find the strength in cooperation, I believe in remediation and see the forest beyond the seeds and search for the value beyond the exhausted surface of a soil.
I think making sure knowledge is accessible, shared and transmitted across disciplines, generations and cultures is crucial for a sustainable future; connecting this knowledge allows to make seen what is yet to be started: that forest beyond the seeds.
