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:

Synorogenic Sediments: local and regional scale interaction of deformation and sedimentation, early (pre-lithification) deformation of sediments

current projects:
Fault rocks and alluvial sedimentation in the Abbruzzi Apennines

past projects:
Pilot study - early deformation in deep water sediments
Geometry and sequence of thrusting in the Subalpine Molasse of western Austria and Bavaria

key research area: Gosau Group at Muttekopf

Paleomagnetism in orogenic systems

past projects:
Large rotations in the Alps and their structural expression
Rotation of segments of the Northern Calcareous Alps

Regional Geology: Tectonic evolution of the western part of the Eastern Alps

current projects:
Geometry of thrust sheets of the western Northern Calcareous Alps, or, systematics of out-of-sequence thrusting

past projects:
ACoRE - B: Potential of deep Geothermics (alpS - GmbH)
Geological map of the Reit im Winkl and Seegatterl sheets for the Bavarian Geological Survey
