I am a postdoc currently working at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (BOKU) in Vienna, Austria. I have a background in geography with a specialization in remote sensing, but I call myself a landscape ecologist. I am particularly interested in understand the dynamics of forest ecosystem, that is how forests change through space and time, and how those changes are affected by landscape-scale processes. 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 Lidar, meteorological records and/or process modeling.
My free-time is mainly occupied by climbing, hiking 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.
