Mateusz Pietrzela has been strengthening the research team at urgewald since the beginning of 2021, where he works on the “Global Oil and Gas Exit List”.
Mateusz is interested in political, social and ecological aspects of material flows (raw materials, electronic waste). After completing his Masters in Sustainable Development at Uppsala University, he gained initial research experience at the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute before working in finance for several years. Parallel to his work at urgewald, Mateusz is currently doing his doctorate at the University of Leipzig.
In his spare time, Mateusz likes to play all kinds of music: from Mozart and Bach on the piano to psych rock on the guitar and hardcore punk on the drums.
