Educated in Austria, Netherlands and USA I cover a wide range of water related topics. During the past 40+ years I have worked literally on most aspects of the water cycle, from rainfall all the way to groundwater on quantitative and qualitative aspects. Examples of projects implemented include: revitalisation of wetlands and river branches within a national park; cleaning up major groundwater contaminations; restoring lake water quality; major flood protection and mitigation projects; complex groundwater management during subway construction; hydropower development; photovoltaic installation for irrigation; small-scale water supplies and decentralized sanitation. My work has typically involved cross-cutting issues within teams covering geology, chemistry, ecology and limnology, as well as the development of innovative approaches and solutions. Over the past 15 years, DRM and Climate Change Adaptation have been the main focus of all water related projects I carried out.
