Clinical & Research Focus
During my medical internship, I realized already at my first station with a general practitioner in Salzburg that I am fascinated by oncology. My years in Klagenfurt only further reinforced this realization and I developed the strong urge to use my knowledge and empathy to help people through this difficult time in their lives.

In the last months of my medical internship, I discovered the field of radiation therapy thanks to the chief physician of the clinic in Klagenfurt, Dr. Raunik. I soon realized that radiation therapy offered me the opportunity to unite my two fascinations, namely radiology and oncology, and I had made up my mind concerning my medical focus.

When I first learned of MedAustron, the center was still under construction. Nevertheless, I immediately applied for completing the necessary training in Klagenfurt, and later changed to MedAustron. What I have always found particularly interesting about MedAustron was the unique opportunity to learn more about proton and hadron therapy.

Finally, due to my personal situation I continued and completed my training in Salzburg. This change of locations enabled me to learn about different processes and systems within radiation oncology, and formed my overall work experience. I still come home from each working day with the feeling of having done something meaningful and fulfilling.

My clinical focus lies on the treatment of skull base tumors, chordoma, chondrosarcoma and CNS tumors.
