Research topic

I am investigating the biogeochemical effects of temperature on microbial populations in aquifers and its contaminant-degrading capabilities.

At UFZ since

February 2018

How did you learn about the UFZ?

I came across UFZ during an internet search whilst looking for PhD opportunities.

Why did you come to the UFZ?

Their research on aquifer biogeochemistry interests me having done research related to stable isotope probing during my Masters, so I was immediately attracted to it, applied for it and here I am.

What do you like about the city you live in?

Leipzig is unique in its own way, size-wise it is a city that isn´t too big yet isn´t too small. With a mix of architecture and a colourful history, it certainly offers a plethora of activities catering to different needs of its residents.

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

UFZ has a seemingly good support structure for its students and staff, and allows everyone from various levels to interact with one another, regardless of race, language, religion or political beliefs.


I try to hit the gym a few times a week. Other than that, I am still an avid player of the Pokemon Go.
