Born in Salzburg, I found my way to the University of Natural Resources & Life Sciences Vienna to study landscape planning and architecture. My masters thesis focused on ecological and economical solutions for turf areas, so-called flowering turf.
In 2006, I started my scientific work at the Institute of Soil Bioengineering and Landscape Construction. The focus from then on was the development of technical solutions to allow the broad application of green infrastructure in the context of urban challenges. In 2014, I co-founded the Green4Cities company to close the gap between research and planning practice. Today I am a senior scientist at BOKU and CTO of the G4C company.
