At UFZ since

March 2017

Why did you come to the UFZ?

I wanted to apply my education on a task which helps to protect our nature and also follow my interests in programming and working in an interdisciplinary field. At UFZ I have the chance to do all of that.

What do you like about the city you live in?

The lakes in the south of Leipzig!

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

At UFZ I work on a meaningful project and have a lot of freedom to realise my goals. In addition, I admire the flexible working hours so I can spend time with my little son when it is necessary.


Basketball, Travelling, Surfing, Cycling...but mostly spending time with my son :)
