About me and this blog

I'm a freelance geologist working mainly in the Austroalpine crystalline rocks and the South Alpine Palaeozoic and Mesozoic cover-sediments in the Eastern Alps.
I graduated with a project on Rock Glaciers dynamics and hydrology in the Ötztal-Stubai-Complex, this phase left a special interest for quaternary deposits and modern glacial environments, but the last years have seen also increasing engagement between the former atolls of the Dolomites.

During my research on glaciers, studying old maps and reports on the former extent of these white cows, I became interested in history, especially the development of geomorphologic, paleontological and geological concepts by naturalists and geologists. Living in a key area for the history of geology, I will so combine curiosity, field trips and old depictions and "blog" about how geology developed and how it today impacts our life.
