Nicholai Xuereb – Logistics Coordinator

Nicholai has just completed his bachelor’s course at the University of Malta and will graduate with a B.Sc. (Hons) in Earth Systems this December. He is extremely passionate about nature, ecology and conservation so you will often find him accompanied by his trusty camera since he also loves nature photography. In order to raise funds and gain experience for a masters course in conservation, Nicholai is currently taking a gap year, during which he would also like to pursue his other interests such as fitness, hiking and EGEA. Having joined EGEA in 2017, Nicholai has participated in a number of events, however, his favourite is by far the Conquering the Transylvanian Alps Hike 4.0 in Romania, as it was an incredible challenge, and challenges are also one of his passions.
