About me

I am a full time attending Retinal Specialist and Surgeon at the Department of Ophthalmology, Rudolf Foundation Clinic, Vienna. I have conducted several clinical trials and have published over 30 articles in peer-reviewed journals. My research interests are vitreoretinal disorders and surgical approaches, including retinal detachment surgery and macular surgery and new advances in combined cataract and vitreoretinal surgery as well as intraoperative optical coherence tomography.

I regularly attend international and national meetings and have been accepted as a member in the Retina Society, the ASRS, the Club Jules Gonin, the Euretina, the AAO and the ARVO. In addition, I have completed the SOE-Leadership development program “EuLDP”. I have completed several observerships at the Weill Cornell Medical College in New York.

I am an associate professor of ophthalmology at Cornell University in New York and Medical University of Vienna, member of the National Retina Committee of the Austrian Ophthalmological Society, and the vice chair of Austrian Young Ophthalmologists.
