At UFZ since

March 2015

How did you learn about the UFZ?

Through conference talks.

Why did you come to the UFZ?

Out of interest in the research topics of the working group which I am now part of, and also for the working opportunities that only a big research center can offer.

What do you like about the city you live in?

There are many things. Leipzig is neither too small nor too big and it is a very lively and green city. Additionally, it is in the middle of Germany and Europe, such that many places and friends are within reach for a quick visit.

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

I feel very comfortable in my working environment.
