Denise Christina Ruther
Field of work
I teach in the bachelor programme Geology and Geohazards and the international semester programme Geohazards and Climate Change. I have course responsibility for Sedimentology and Snow science and avalanches. My research falls within the field of Quaternary sedimentology and geomorphology and includes mass movement processes.
