At UFZ since

July 2013

How did you learn about the UFZ?

I studied in Halle and we already had contact with the UFZ in some courses

Why did you come to the UFZ?

First of all, the research question sounded interesting, and I think that the UFZ is one of the best if you want to do your PhD in ecology around Leipzig-Halle

What do you like about the city you live in?

I am actually placed in the botanical garden in Halle, which is very nice

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

I really like the course offers and the financial support when visiting courses outside of the UFZ
