Doris Damyanovic has been Vice Rector for Teaching, Continuing Education and Students since 1 April 2023.

She studied Landscape Planning and Management at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna (graduating in 1997). Directly after her studies, she worked for five years in landscape planning, specialising in nature conservation. Since 2002 she has been teaching and researching in the field of landscape planning at the Institute of Landscape Planning, Department of Landscape, Spatial and Infrastructure Sciences. In 2006 she received her PhD and in 2016 qualified as a university lecturer in the field of landscape planning at BOKU. In 2017 she became Associate Professor for Sustainable Landscape Planning and Gender Planning at BOKU. During this time she was a visiting professor at Leibniz Universität Hannover (2011) and a guest lecturer at Technische Universität Berlin (2022).

Her teaching and research work covers formal and informal planning instruments in landscape planning and spatial development, climate-adapted landscape and urban planning, gender-sensitive planning, various stakeholder processes in inter- and transdisciplinary research projects and risk governance. This involves close cooperation with municipalities, cities and residents. An important focus is the implementation of equal opportunities and gender equality in spatial planning and development.

Doris Damyanovic has been deputy head of the institute since 2004 and deputy head of the department since 2022. She has worked in various academic, appointment and qualification commissions. In 2011, she became Erasmus coordinator for the Landscape Planning and Landscape Architecture degree programme.
