Modelling of Bioenergy and Bioeconomy Futures

At UFZ since

April 2017

How did you learn about the UFZ?

I learnt about UFZ through Academic Positions, a European career network for academics, researchers and scientists

Why did you come to the UFZ?

The research topic was interesting. I believe there is a lot of potential for biomass to play a pivotal role in the transition from fossil based energy systems to renewable ones. Being part of a research team focusing on research in this field was attractive for me.

What do you like about the city you live in?

The ease with which I can move from one point to the next both by public transport and bike. I am intrigued by the rich history behind the city.

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

The staff are friendly and that has made my process of adapting easy and fast. The availability of research tools and the opportunity to undertake courses that enhance one's research capabilities appeals to me
