I am interested in process understanding and quantification of phenomena in mountain permafrost related to climate. The vision for my research is to model and to quantify processes in mountain permafrost (e.g. frost weathering at different depth) combining lab experiments and field measurements in high mountain environments (e.g. acoustic emission, temperature and capacitance for moisture). For this, the combination of geo-science and engineering is very useful and enables field measurements at locations in hardly accessible environments.
