Curriculum Vitae

1990:  M. Sc., University of Innsbruck, Austria: Diploma thesis: "Geology and Sedimentology of the Western Muttekopf Gosau Basin"

1996: Ph. D., University of Innsbruck, Austria: Ph.D. thesis: "Deformation and Diagenesis of the Lower Inn Valley Tertiary between Rattenberg and Durchholzen"

2003: Habilitation, University of Innsbruck, Austria, Habilitationsschrift "Deformation of the Northern Calcareous through Alpine Orogeny - Brittle Structures and Synorogenic Sediments"

Research Interests:

• field geology and geological mapping
• deformation of sedimentary rocks - soft sediment deformation, brittle microtectonics, section balancing, seismic interpretation, 3D modeling
• regional geology

current projects:

GeEN Inntal - Integrative geothermal energy potential in the eastern part of the Inn Valley: A key demo case for resilient geothermal energy supply in Alpine regions

Fault rocks and alluvial sedimentation in the Central Apennines

Geometry of thrust sheets of the western Northern Calcareous Alps, systematics of out-of-sequence thrusting, and salt tectonics

past projects:

Geometry and sequence of thrusting in the Subalpine Molasse of western Austria and Bavaria

ACoRE - B: Potential of deep Geothermics in Vorarlberg (alpS - GmbH)

Geological map sheets Reit im Winkl and Seegatterl for the Bavarian Geological Survey

Kinematics and Geochronology in the Rätikon mountains, Vorarlberg

Paleomagnetism in orogenic systems: Large rotations in the Alps and their structural expression, Rotation of segments of the Northern Calcareous Alps

Synorogenic Sediments: local and regional scale interaction of deformation and sedimentation, early (pre-lithification) deformation of sediments: key research area: Gosau Group at Muttekopf

Tectonics and diagenesis in Tertiary sediments of the Inn Valley

Geological map of the Brenner base tunnel north feeder: Triassic south of Inn valley

TectonicVB: A program for analysis of structural data (currently discontinued, last version running on MacOS 9.2; use SheepShaver to emulate MacOS 9 on the current MacOS X)
