Living Space & Mobility

The anthropogenic use of space, the mobility of people and goods as well as the protection of natural habitats and ecological diversity are subject to constantly changing conditions.

smart planning

enables us to intervene in the mutual impact processes of use of space, mobility and transport. The combination of many years of international practical experience with scientific research led to the development of innovative approaches in transport, spatial and environmental planning.

professional background

I have made my first contacts with traffic and urban planning topics and engagements already at school. A deeper academic consolidation took place during the study of Urban And Regional Planning at the Vienna University of Technology with a focus on Infrastructure Economics and Transport Planning. After graduation and working as a project assistant at the Institute for Public Finance and Infrastructure Policy, I’ve been member of the ILF Consulting Engineers ZT GmbH based in Rum (AT). In the beginning working as junior project staff member, I soon got the opportunity to lead large national and international infrastructure projects and finally became deputy head of the transport department. In 2012, while still a member of the ILF, I took up the position of university assistant at the Institute for Infrastructure, Unit for Intelligent Transport Systems of the University of Innsbruck.

After finsihing by PhD as a “Dr. techn.” with distinction and 1 1/2 year working as Senior Scientist at the University of Innsbruck, I was leading the transport department at the ILF Consulting Engineers GmbH until autumn 2018. In summer 2018 I finally returned to the University of Innsbruck as a Senior Scientist in Traffic Science and was sworn in as chartered engineering consultant for regional policy.
In addition to my professional activities, have been appointed as a Nature Conservation Officer of the Province of Tyrol for the district of Landeck by the Tyrolean Government. In the course of the city council election in 2018, I was elected and given the mandate of the district representative Igls.
