A life guided by curiosity and scout values*, filled with adventures and challenges
that help me to leave a positive and meaningful foot print in society and science,
while keeping my independence and caring for my family.
I received my Bachelor of Science in 2012 and my Master of Science in 2015, both in Earth Sciences at the Graz University of Technology (Austria). I obtained my PhD in Earth System Sciences in 2019 from the University of Zürich (UZH, Switzerland). Since July 2021, I am affiliated with Dalhousie University.
My interests span throughout geoscience methods and applications to investigate the lithosphere and pedosphere. In particular I am interested in geochronological and geochemical investigation methods for the determination of surface processes across scales.
I have always believed in a balance between Hand-Mind-Heart! In general, my spare time is mostly construed to be with my family and friends. Our recreational activities in nature comprise foremost in hiking, mountaineering, camping, or cycling. As passionate sailor and skipper I love to travel at sea and exploring new places. I usually use rainy days for various woodwork (furniture construction) and implementing graphic ideas for publications.
