Research

Research Interests:

My research interests are mainly focused on geomorphometrical analysis of digital terrain models to explore the characteristics and the evolution of mountain topography, especially looking at geomorphological process domains.

  • Tectonic geomorphology
  • Glacial geomorphology
  • Evolution of drainage networks
  • General and specific geomorphometry
  • Applicability of different land surface parameters (LSPs) to assess the distribution and intensity of geomorphological processes and process domains in mountain ranges.

Research Projects:

  • conneCt (Tectonic modulation of climate cycle impact on orogens)
  • RiCoLa (River course changes and landslides)
  • FUTURELAKES (Formation and future evolution of glacier lakes in Austria)
  • MOREXPERT 2 (Monitoring Expert System for Hazardous Rock Walls)
