I am a post-doc researcher and Hertha-Firnberg Fellow at the Department of Geography. My research interests concern social aspects of risk and resilience in the context of natural hazards, climate change and tourism development.  A particular focus of my research is on hazards and risk in the Global South: how tourism creates risk and what factors influence risk management, and how hazard and risk research generates impacts for communities and research participants. More information on my personal website.

Regions: Alps (Austria), Himalaya (Nepal, India)

Methods: semi-structured interviews, focus group discussions, questionnaire surveys, content analysis, choice-bases conjoint analysis
