At UFZ since

January 2014

How did you learn about the UFZ?

I visited UFZ Halle in September 2012 with my Master thesis supervisor for a research meeting

Why did you come to the UFZ?

Because of its interdisciplinary research environment

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

To me UFZ is an ideal place to do science because it not only gives importance to your research but also keeps in consideration your life after lab. HIGRADE provides an opportunity to join a well-planned and structured PhD program.


In my free time I love to play cricket, watch movies, and gossip with friends
