Her works include instrumental and electroacoustic compositions, sound installations and performances with live electronics.

She received commissions by Wien Modern, Jeunesse Wien, ÖGZM, Ensemble Reconsil, Ensemble Platypus, Hörstadt, e_may, The International Rosario Marciano Piano Competition, amongst others. 2011 she received the Scholarship for Young Artists by the Austrian Federal Ministry for Education, Arts and Culture, 2007 the Theodor-Körner Award for Sciences and Art.
