At UFZ since

October 2016

How did you learn about the UFZ?

I know this by a senior colleague in my previous university, he was here before for a two-year exchange, also I find some common topics with the present group.

Why did you come to the UFZ?

I want to know more about biofuels and also am interest in microbiology, it's my honor to join Sabine's group, which can realize both of this. The Chinese government has paid much more attentions on clean energy and environment, which could be a chance for me to do something related; to learn skills from my colleagues and to exchange my thoughts with different people will be a great experience.

What do you like about the city you live in?

Although it is still cold and never stops raining these days, a city with history and culture makes me feel excited.

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

Great and helps me a lot.
