Abstract

I am a technical employee for teaching and research at the Chair of Physical Geography and the Chair of Remote Sensing in Geo- and Ecosystem Research (Remote Sensing Centre for Earth System Research). My tasks include the application and maintenance of technical equipment, the coupling and intersection of exploration methods and their data, and GIS analyses. Thematically, I am particularly interested in sedimentology, geoarchaeology and geomorphology.

As part of my ongoing PhD project, I am working on the application of direct-push sensing at wetland sites. In the summer semester 2020, I have a teaching assignment for field education.

In particular, I am working on the application of direct-push techniques to wetland sites in the following projects as part of my ongoing PhD project:

  • Direct push applications in wetland (geo)archaeology (2016-2022), funding: DFG (ZI 721/12-1)
  • Fossa Carolina: The link between the harbour networks at the rivers Danube and Rhine. Studies on bridging the central European watershed in the Middle Ages (2012-2020), funding: DFG (ZI 721/10-1, ET 20/7-1)
