October 2009

How did you learn about the UFZ?

I learned about the UFZ at the University of Bayreuth, where I did my masters

Why did you come to the UFZ?

When I finished my masters I had the opportunity to join the project TEEB - The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity, an interdisciplinary project integrating ecology, environmental policy and economics. This was the kind of challenge I was looking for.

What do you like about the city you live in?

Leipzig in winter can be tough but once spring arrives it is great to discover the great cultural and natural diversity the city has to offer

How do you like it at the UFZ / in HIGRADE?

I enjoy the friendly work environment and the interdisciplinary work across different teams and departments
