From October 2009 to March 2013, she wrote her PhD within the „Vienna Doctoral Programme on Water Resources Systems“, an interdisciplinary programme aimed at researching complex water resource systems. In her PhD with the title „Extreme flood estimation and runoff process in alpine catchments“, she focused on flood generation and flood risk in alpine areas. The Phd was awarded with the „Dr. Ernst Fehrer Preis“ of the Vienna University of Technology. She has written a number of international publications, is member of the IAHS (International Association of Hydrological Sciences), EGU und AGU and co-target leader of the new research initiative „Panta Rhei“ of the IAHS.
