Ethnobotany, biodiversity, cultural and environmental sustainability, permaculture, subsistence.

Through the study (Bakk.) of landscape planning and architecture at the University of Vienna, I discovered my interest for edible landscapes and, subsequently, for crops and the associated knowledge. Tradition and biodiversity are intimately linked. Often one can not exist without  the other. Currently I’m finishing the master program "Ecological Agriculture” at the University of Agricultural Sciences in Vienna, with a focus on sustainability and socio-economics.

Through numerous visits abroad, I was able to get insight into the different agricultural methods and traditions.
