PhD (Unil), MSc (UOtago), BSc (UChile)

My research interests lay between mountain geomorphology, glaciology and remote sensing techniques. I have mainly worked in the Swiss Alps, the Southern Alps of New Zealand, the Chilean Andes and the Antarctic Peninsula. My PhD research was mainly focused on the deployment of UAV surveys to study complex rock glacier changes at very high spatial resolutions. This included the deployment of several UAV missions and ground control measurements in the Valais Alps and the Dry Andes of Chile. Presently, I work for the rock glacier inventories and kinematics ( service at the University of Fribourg, Switzerland and continue working on rock glacier dynamics at the University of Lausanne using UAV.

Keywords: Rock glacier and glacier monitoring, Close- and long-range remote sensing techniques, Mountain geomorphology, Periglacial environments.
