          I have been working for the past 5 years at the Institute of Hydraulic Engineering and Water Resources Management and studying at the Doctoral School of Civil Engineering Sciences. The work at the Institute has allowed me to create partnerships, build networks and both present my research and increase my knowledge at international congresses. The broad range of technical research and applications at the TU Graz has allowed me to create an interface with other disciplines. I am convinced that interdisciplinary exchange is the key to new achievements, gaining knowledge and making economic applications. My work and doctoral studies, which overlap one another professionally, present very exciting challenges.
