Biography

since 2007
PhD student in Thermochronology and Structural Geology with Prof. M.R. Strecker, PD PhD E.R. Sobel and Dr. R.C. Thiede, Department of Geosciences, University of Potsdam, Germany. Member of the Graduate School 1364 "Shaping Earth's Surface in a Variable Environment", funded by the German Research Foundation, the federal state of Brandenburg and the University of Potsdam.
2007
Diploma in Geology, Free University of Berlin. Diploma-Thesis: „Construction of the southern Eastern Cordillera, NW-Argentina: From early Cretaceous extension to middle Miocene shortening, constrained by AFT-Thermochronometry”. Supervisors: PD Dr. E. Scheuber, Free University of Berlin and PD PhD E. Sobel, University of Potsdam.
2001-2005
Teaching assistant at the Institute for Geological Sciences, Free University of Berlin
2000-2007
Student in Geology, Department of Earth Sciences, Free University of Berlin, Germany

Research

My main interest is the complex interaction between climate, tectonics and suface processes in convergent orogenic settings on geological timescales. The techniques applied include low-temperature thermochronology (apatite fission-track and (U-Th)/He on apaptite and zircon) and 3D thermo-kinematic modeling (Pecube). At present, my research focuses on the deformation and exhumation history of the Himalaya in NW India and of the Puna/Eastern Cordillera in NW Argentina.
