Research Interests

Physical geography, Quaternary Science, Climatic Geomorphology, Natural hazards, Paleoclimatology, Sediment Budgets.

Research areas

Bernese Alps, Hasli Valley (Switzerland).

PhD Project

My research will focus on the study of accumulation rates and estimation of a high resolution sediment budget of the upper Aare basin. The objective is to understand and represent accumulation processes in the Hasli Valley in the last 1000 years, taking into account natural climate variability, land use changes and human impacts on this fluvial system.


Participation in research groups

FluvAlps Research Group - Fluvial Variability in Alpine Environments, University of Barcelona.
