At UFZ since

June 2013

How did you learn about the UFZ?

In my Master's program at the university of Leipzig different courses were offered in cooperation with the UFZ Leipzig and Halle.

Why did you come to the UFZ?

The good reputation of the UFZ as a scientific research center and the positive impression of the team I gained in the Master's program courses convinced me to come and stay.

What do you like about the city you live in?

I actually do not live in Halle, nor in Leipzig, but both cities have their own charme that I appreciate.

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

A good working atmosphere within the team offering great opportunities for productivity and creativity
