I am a postdoc at the Ecosystem Dynamics and Forest Management Group at the Technical University of Munich, Germany. I am trained as a geographer with a specialization in remote sensing, but I identify myself as landscape ecologist. My research focusses on understanding the dynamics of forest ecosystems using remote sensing data, with a particular focus on forest disturbance and recovery.

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, going to the cinema, cooking and a good bottle of wine after spending the day outside.
