Who I am
I am a board-certified gynaecologist and professor at the Medical University of Vienna. After spending my childhood and youth in the wonderful city of Reutte in Tyrol, I graduated from Innsbruck University Medical School. I then moved to the United Stated and successfully completed postdoctoral fellowships at the renowned Georgetown University (USA) and- upon my return to Europe- at the University of Leuven (Belgium), where I studied the influence of hormones on the development of malignant tumors.
