Meet our current Junior Analysts:
Jennifer is from Scotland and she has a First Class Honors degree in International Relations from the University of St Andrews. She is currently working towards a part-time MSc in Corporate Social Responsibility with Sustainable Development. Previously, she worked for the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) in Singapore, where she wrote publications focused on national implementation strategies of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Jennifer joined us to build on her knowledge of how the systemic drivers of unsustainable outcomes can be identified and changed. She is interested in the changing nature of global governance, and in particular the intersection between corporate responsibility and institutionalization. While at NewForesight, she is working on a diverse array of projects, and hopes specifically to improve her quantitative and visualization skills.
“The best part of working at NewForesight is the people. My colleagues are all highly intelligent, driven and committed individuals and the organization encourages you to explore what you as an individual can offer to NewForesight. I am given real responsibilities on the projects I am working on, and I know I have a great deal to learn from my colleagues over the next six months.”
Andrea is from South Africa, where she obtained her Honors degree in Forensic Accounting at North-West University, and undertook a Corporate Compliance traineeship at Toyota. In 2015, she moved to the Netherlands where she completed her MSc in Business Administration at TIAS School for Business and Society, followed by an internship focusing on alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) at Maastricht School of Management (MSM).
At NewForesight, Andrea is interested in developing the skills necessary to ensure that sustainability, trust and integrity are integrated in every aspect of a business. She is working on two of our flagship projects—CocoaAction and the Organic Cotton Accelerator—to achieve her learning goals.
“NewForesight has a unique atmosphere. It challenges boundaries and exemplifies the notion that people make a company! I am excited to be part of this team and I look forward to learn from my colleagues, and to contribute to the field of sustainability.”
Filipe Di Matteo
Filipe is from Brazil, where he obtained an International Relations Bachelor from the Federal Fluminense University. In 2012, he moved to the Netherlands to pursue an MSc in Sustainable Development and International Development at Utrecht University, during which he undertook a research internship in Mozambique.

At NewForesight, Filipe hopes to improve his professional and practical knowledge about sustainability in agricultural value chains, and to apply his experience about inclusive business models. Filipe also hopes to improve his quantitative data analysis skills.
“After my interview at NewForesight, I felt encouraged and inspired to take this opportunity to work in the sustainability sector. At NewForesight, my colleagues are driven by change-making; and it seems that the potential to grow, both personally and professionally, is immeasurable.”
