Profile of HIGRADE participants
I searched for scholarships in the area of Ecosystem Services research and I found a cooperation between UFZ and DAAD (my current scholarship financer). Then I began to read about UFZ and got increasingly interested, I applied for the PhD scholarship and...here I am.
Top research, top supervision, top facilities.
I like the open spaces of Leipzig, the green spaces and the surroundings. On the street normally there is space space for everyone, cyclists, car drivers and pedestrians. Public transportation is also ok.
Even though I don’t work directly at UFZ, I work at iDiv, I like the fact that it is like a knowledge industry. At first is a bit overwhelming but then one gets used to it.

I like to be outside! I have dedicated myself in the last years to rock-climbing, it is certainly my favorite activity. I also like to go for a go in the mountains. My home country, Chile, offers good conditions for both. Further, I like to play football and other team sports.
