About Aura

At the moment I’m working as Head of EU Affairs, Public Policy Director at Facebook (Instagram, WhatsApp and Oculus) in Brussels. Before joining the FB team, I worked six years as a political adviser for the Vice-President and the in-house think tank European Political Strategy Centre (EPSC) of the European Commission. 

Throughout my career I have strived to build a better-functioning European Union for all. A European Union that is open, accessible, transparent and accountable, and which contributes to a more connected European and global community. 

My opinions in my blog and on my social media channels are my own.

My values

My goal is to work for more united and a better-functioning European Union in order to build a stronger Europe for everyone. 

In my opinion, the EU needs to focus on economic, foreign and security policy and the challenges of climate change.

I am a center-right liberal. Western values – democracy, rule of law, equality and human rights – are the foundation of my political thinking.
