About

I am a postdoc currently working at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (BOKU) in Vienna, Austria. I am trained as a geographer with a specialization in remote sensing, but I identify myself as a landscape ecologist. My research focusses on understanding the dynamics of forest ecosystem, that is how forests change through space and time, and what drives those dynamics. As trees are long-living organisms, most of my research builds on using long satellite time series, which I combine with additional data and methods such as active remote sensing, meteorological records and process modeling.

My free-time is mainly occupied by hiking, climbing, cycling and skiing, which I try to document here. I also very much enjoy Jazz music, European cinema, cooking and a good bottle of wine after spending the day outside. I live in Vienna (Austria) and Trieste (Italy).

SAVE THE DATE: We are organizing an international symposium titled Forest Disturbance and Ecosystem Dynamics in a Changing World, help September 2020 at Berchtesgaden National Park, Germany. For more information, please visit: http://www.ecosystem-dynamics-berchtesgaden.de
