I am interested in sedimentary processes in alpine landscapes . I primarily study the spatial and temporal patterns of sediment erosion and transport processes in glacial and fluvial systems as well as the mechanisms that control these processes. I use cosmogenic radionuclides and field data to address my research questions. Recently, I started to employ and to learn more about numerical modeling.
