At UFZ since

October 2016

How did you learn about the UFZ?

I knew this by a senior doctor of my university, he came here before for exchange, also I read some papers of my group's, then I searched the webpage to know more about information of UFZ.

Why did you come to the UFZ?

I want to know more about biofuels and also have interest in microbiology, it's my honor to join Sabine's group, which can realize both of this. The Chinese government has pay much more attention on clean energy and environment, which could be a chance for me to do something meaningful; to learn skills from my colleagues and change my mind with different people will be a great idea.

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.
