Her work focuses primarily on contemporary composed music and free improvisation. She began to achieve national recognition in 2012 when she won second place of Klagenfurt’s Gustav Mahler Prize. She was subsequently featured on Jazznacht, a music program on Österreich 1, the cultural channel for the Austrian public service broadcaster Österreichischer Rundfunk, and in 2014 she was awarded the Theodor Körner Prize for music composition. She has completed commissioned works for Brucknerfest Linz and Wiener Festwochen, and has worked with Carl Ludwig Hübsch, Tristan Honsinger and Joëlle Leàndre – among others. /
