My current work is focused on snow and firn. The work in the past years was focused on how to measure snow properties quantitatively and at higher spatial resolution, and from the field- to the micro-scale. To this goal, I am developing new instruments. Scientifically, I am interested in all physical and geological processes occurring in the snowpack, and in different environments. Recent expeditions to Antarctica and the Arctic widened my experience in these fascinating environments.
Experimental investigation of snow physical properties at the micro- and macroscale (mechanical, thermal, optical). Processes in recrystallization, metamorphism and diagenesis of the snowpack. Development of new instrumentation (3 patents). Development of quantitative stratigraphy. Application of quantitative stratigraphy to larger-scale processes (remote sensing, avalanche formation, climate research).
Expert on questions on snow physics for major global companies, e.g. Nestlé Research.
