RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research focuses on the tectonic evolution of orogenic systems, especially Alpine-type collisional orogens. I have worked on projects in the southeastern-most part of the Eastern Alps (Pohorje, Slovenia), the Swiss-Italian Western Alps (Valais, Aosta) and southern Turkey. I employ different methods from the fields of Structural Geology and Metamorphic Petrology to decipher the tectonometamorphic evolution of tectonic units in the course of progressive orogeny. I am especially interested in the mechanisms that trigger and drive the exhumation of (ultra)high-pressure rocks back to the earth’s surface. I use field mapping and structural field work as the basis for further analyses and interpretations. Microstructural and textural investigations give insights into the geometry and kinematics of deformation. I use electron probe microanalyses (EPMA) in combination with phase diagram modelling and geothermobarometric calculations to constrain pressure and temperature conditions. I am also interested in the interplay and feedbacks between deformation, fluid flow and metamorphism along subduction interfaces.
