I have studied mineralogy, am a mineral collector and work as a professional mineralogist (Curator of the Mineral and Ore Deposit Collections of the Natural History Museum Vienna since January 2007 - my website at the museum: http://www.nhm-wien.ac.at/en/uwe_kolitsch).
My strongest interests and expertise are in systematic mineralogy, crystallography and crystal chemistry, ore deposits, but also in materials science and environmental mineralogy. Recently, part of my scientific work has focused on new slag "minerals" and their crystallography.

As a Mindat Manager (since 2005) in my spare time, I mainly add, update, correct and generally improve locality and mineral pages. My focus is, naturally, on pages related to Austria, with support from several mineral photographers and collectors. I also try to help with answering identification and other questions on the message boards.

Professional memberships: DMG (German Mineralogical Society), Mineralogical Society (GB), ÖMG (Austrian Mineralogical Society), SMMP (Society of Mineral Museum Professionals), Stuttgarter Mineralien- und Fossilienfreunde e.V., Honorary member of AMI (Italian Micromineral Society).
