At UFZ since

October 2015

How did you learn about the UFZ?

Publications and research.

Why did you come to the UFZ?

Having my educational background in both Environmental Sciences (B.Sc.) and Biotechnology (M.Phil) made me choose UFZ as doctoral destination.

What do you like about the city you live in?

Of course the UFZ :)

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

I think its really interesting to take courses with Higrade when you want research pause. Moreover, courses offered by Higrade are really informative and I would like to get maximum out of this.
