BiographyHaving finished business school (A-levels with honours) in Salzburg (Austria), I have moved to Argentina as a social service volunteer working with Holocaust Survivours. Besides gathering tremendous experiences I am ever since connected to Argentina either through research work (with waste picker cooperatives in Buenos Aires, Buenos Aires as a European Cultural Capital, or NW-Argentina's soy production and environmental justice), internships and assistances (e.g. Consul of Cameroon in Argentina, or international trade) or long friendships.
Besides Argentina, I have lived in Malmö (Sweden), studied at Roskilde University (Denmark) and University of León (Spain) before moving to Innsbruck to follow my Master Degree and PhD.
Areas of Research / Professional Expertise
I currently work as an independent Post-Doc financed by the Post-DocTrack Pilot Program of the Austrian Academy of Sciences. Thematically, my focus lies on the new field of visceral geographies (both as research topic and methodological approach), human-environment interrelations, particularly in terms of fairness and (environmental) justice. In terms of topics, soy, waste management and fairness/justice are central. A relatively new field here is digital geographies (particularly surrounding YouTube). Method(olog)ically I love going new ways, re-thinking classic (predominantly qualitative) methods and combining them with new approaches from the multi-sensory realm.
Music plays an important role in my life, which is also reflected in the way I pursue my scientific working.
