I’m a passionate botanist, phytosociologist and scientist with very good plant species knowledge. In my master's thesis, I researched changes in vessel sizes and densities in Alnus alnobetula along an altitudinal transect in the Axamer Lizum (Tyrol, A). And I investigated the influence of climatic factors on the wood anatomy of this currently most spreading shrub species in the Alpine region. Currently, I am working on the function and morphology of epithemal hydathodes and the functional significance of guttation on ecosystems. I would like to share my enthusiasm for nature, my knowledge, experience and expertise with students and stakeholders. My hobbies are: mountain hiking, cycling, photography, observing processes and interactions in nature, reading.
