Why did you come to the UFZ?

I was offered a position in the very interesting McBiogas project ( and the know-how and equipment at the UFZ were very appealing to me.

What do you like about the city you live in?

Leipzig is a great city, because it has a lot to offer regarding culture and other leisure activities, but it is still small enough to get around by bike.

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

Both subject specific courses and soft skill courses are very helpful. So far, I participated in a soft skill course about project management. In addition, I participated in a course about Ecological Population Modelling that was helpful for my research topic.
