At UFZ since

April 2017

How did you learn about the UFZ?

My Master’s thesis addressed the problem of decreasing productivity of monocultures in the Jena Experiment (JE - one of the longest-running biodiversity experiments in Europe), which was supervised by Christiane Roscher. She is one of the founding team members of the JE and research associate at the UFZ and motivated me to write my PhD thesis at the UFZ.

What do you like about the city you live in?
