Anh-Dao was born and grew up in Saigon in the South of Vietnam. She has been living, studying and working in Geneva, Switzerland, in the last 10 years, during which she took part in multiple environmental projects involving different aquatic systems (inland, alpine and oceanic environment). In 2013 she worked on the Planetsolar, that travelled across the Atlantic Ocean, as an at-sea principal scientific staff. She also has experience working on environmental data and is currently specialized in using Information Technology in Environmental Services (Environmental Mapping, Spatial Data Infrastructure, Data Visualization and Infographics). Whenever not working, she grabs her rucksack and hits the road to discover new places, and records the adventures en route with beautiful pictures as a passionate photographer normally does.
