Wilfried Winkler was born in Lower Austria and received his teacher's diploma in Vienna. Then he was a teacher at public schools in Vienna and private schools in Berne (Switzerland). He graduated in 1977 at University of Fribourg (Switzerland) where he subsequently obtained a PhD in geology in 1981. From 1981-1988, he was a postdoctoral fellow and lecturer at both Fribourg and Basel Universities. At Basel University he obtained his habilitation. He has held since 1988 a position of research associate and senior lecturer for sedimentary petrology, basin analysis and sedimentology at the ETH Zürich. His main research interests are the bearings of tectonics and climate on basin sedimentation, and provenance studies in different plate tectonics settings. Whilst his earlier research was focussed on Alpine, Carpathian and Pyrenean turbidite (flysch) and mélange formations, since 1991 he worked with Master's students in the Sinai rift (Egypt) and co-leaded several Master's, PhD and Postdoctoral projects in the Andes of Ecuador and Peru.
