As a postdoc research fellow at the Institute of the Foundations of Planning, University of Stuttgart (D), I am involved both in research and teaching. Currently, I am working on the topic "planning cultures and approaches" within the COST action IS 1007 "Investigating Cultural Sustainability". Formerly, I have been employed at the Institute of Geography, University of Berne (CH), where I finished my PhD in 2007. I studied at the Faculty of Landscape Architecture and Environmental Development, University of Hanover. I am a member of the networks “Forum Landschaft/Forum Paysage” (CH) and “Landscape Research” (UK).
