Veronika Röthlisberger, is an early Post Doc at the MobiliarLab for Natural Risk, Institute of Geography, University of Bern, Switzerland, and is member of the Oeschger Centre for Climate Change Research.
The awarded poster she presented together with Andreas Zischg and Margreth Keiler at the EGU in 2018 compares different building values estimation schemes within flood exposure analyses on regional to national scales. It illustrates a paper of her PhD thesis on “Spatial and temporal aspects of flood exposure: Analyses and models based on public and insurance data in Switzerland”.
Mrs Röthlisberger holds a diploma in forest engineering from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology ETH in Zurich. After 15 years with various risk related positions in (insurance) industry and administration she rejoined academia in 2014. Her research interests are spatial and temporal aspects of risk and vulnerability analyses, currently focused on floods in Switzerland. She likes to work at the interface of physical and social systems, to investigate how natural hazards impact society and vice versa.
