Thanks for visiting my homepage

I’m a geologist working as a Postdoc at the Geological Institute within the Department Environment & Biodiversity at Salzburg University in Austria.

I am interested in understanding the dynamics of orogenic evolution and its coupling with tectonics, climate and erosion (e.g. Andes, Alps, and the Qinling Mts., China). My area of expertise is in low-T thermochronology. The applied methods allow quantifying exhumation and denudation rates, leading to a better understanding of the processes driving mountain building. I also use structural geology and high-T geochronology data in multidisciplinary studies as well as detrital thermochronology.
