As a historical ecologist I am studying impact of human activities on landscapes and ecosystems over time. I work with different historical sources such as old maps and plans, historical photography and written archival documents. It is fascinating to combine historical material with modern techniques such as GIS and modeling. Thus, interdisciplinary cooperation is crucial for my work.
I like all kind of outdoor activities especially with my family. And I enjoy playing soccer and drinking a couple of beers with my teammates afterwards.
