I have worked at the interface of landscape planning, urban design, participation, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and visualization tools for more than ten years. My main research interests are participatory planning methods within community planning; the development, application and evaluation of spatial analysis and visualization tools; and planning processes that address sustainability, especially climate change, issues at local to regional scales.

In my research, I want to further develop, apply, and evaluate innovative and inter-/transdisciplinary landscape planning processes using up-to-date GIS analysis and visualization tools. Therefore, I suggest an integrated research and teaching approach in courses, studios, workshops and Charrettes with projects that are linked to real-world planning tasks.
