I am a scholar in the field of South Asian Studies / Indology, especially interested in Ayurveda, the Indian epics and the Arthaśāstra. Within these areas I prefer to work on themes like nature reception, conceptions of geography and space, cultural development and ethical concepts.
Current project (PI): Epidemics and Crisis Management in Pre-modern South Asia.


MA and PhD at the University of Vienna, Austria.
