Research interests

The ecological legacy of our ancestors is deeply engraved in the environment today; so as a society, we bear a great environmental responsibility for generations to come. My research aims to understand the land use legacies in our contemporary environment, in order to inform better conservation and land management decisions in the future. I study the Carpathian region – one of the most ecologically and culturally diverse ecosystems in Europe.

Personal Interests

I like to spend my free time outdoors (cycling, mountaineering, hiking, skiing or gardening). I am also a practical spirit and enjoy putting my hands at work: whether it is small repairs or handcrafting. I love to cook and share food with friends!
