At UFZ since

September 2013

How did you learn about the UFZ?

I heard about the UFZ when I was doing my master in Sevilla, since my current supervisor from the UFZ was also my professor during this year

Why did you come to the UFZ?

I came here to do a PhD since I had the great experience before doing part of my master in the UFZ labs. I really enjoyed the work, the nice people and the city by that time, so it was a good idea to come back for the PhD.

What do you like about the city you live in?

I like that it´s diverse and alive without being a big city. I enjoy the green areas and the people.
