About Me

GIS is an integrative computer system to analyze and visualize spatial data. It helps to communicate between different research fields".  

Since 2002 I am working at EAWAG as a GIS specialist, combing my expertise in biology and environmental sciences with GIS and data management.

GIS Support:

My main task is supporting all research groups at EAWAG in questions concerning GIS:

  • Consulting in conceptual questions and finding solution of the spatial aspects in a research project.
  • Technical Support for the research groups in all application of GIS and scripting.
  • Point of contact for geo data and maps (also for our external partners).
  • Member of Steering board "Data management and archiving at eawag".

Research Fields:

Involved in different projects in ecology, hydrology and environmental engineering, my focus is on the watershed and landscape analysis in alpine and European regions, where I investigated watershed properties with GIS and statistical methods.

  • My special interest is on the estimation of pesticide input into Swiss rivers with GIS.
  • I worked on the consequences of climatic change for water temperature and brown trout populations in Alpine rivers, mainly on GIS analysis.
  • For the Book “Rivers of Europe” I was responsible for data collection, map generation and watershed analysis.Book: Rivers of Europe, Elsevier
  • As  a project manager I worked in the first stage of Kartenportal.ch, a portal for searching maps in the main libraries in Switzerland. Kartenportal.ch.  
  • In the National Research Programme NFP61 "Substainable water management" I was involved in the GIS analysis for the thematic synthesis "Management of water resources and growing user demand". NFP61.
