My main interest and passion currently lies in the interdisciplinary and applied fields of Consciousness Studies and Transpersonal Psychology and their potential to provide a new paradigm for individual, social and cultural transformation based on traditional knowledge as well as modern science.

I hold an academic background in Tibetan and Buddhist Studies as well as Library and Information Studies from the University of Vienna and have completed various post-graduate studies with additional training in mindfulness-based, psychosocial and psychotherapeutic interventions. In the course of my studies, I have attended a library internship at the Tibetan Buddhist Ressource Center as well as a clinical research internship at the Oxford Mindfulness Centre.

On the basis of my previous work experience as librarian, editor and translator, next to occasionally teaching, lecturing and writing, I am currently engaged as a freelancer in various professional activities which provide contemplative training and academic information services.
