I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Ecosystem Dynamics and Forest Management Group of the Technical University of Munich. 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 changes. 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 or 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 consider myself a European citizen, calling Freising (Germany), Vienna (Austria) and Trieste (Italy) my home.

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