Profile of HIGRADE participants
I come to know about UFZ from my master's thesis supervisor who is working with a few people at UFZ in an international trans-disciplinary project.
UFZ has well known reputation in the environment field which made my strong interest to pursue my PhD here. I was eager to find an opportunity where I can grow, improve more, and get new skills and UFZ perfectly fits my aim of doing so. I am confident that working at UFZ will broaden my career horizon and will contribute a lot to meet my passion of excelling myself into my research topic.
I live in Leipzig and I have a mix of feelings of living in a city and a beautiful town. For me, Leipzig has both a beauty of a busy city (For example in City centrum, train station) and quiet nature (like surroundings of centre and a beautiful biking track towards the Halle city). Everything in Leipzig is easy to access through either public transports or by cycling. I love the historical monuments of this city :)
I am enjoying courses at HIGRADE as they are well structured and very helpful for planing my PhD career in a pro-active way.

I like cultural exchange (like via food, language) with people from different backgrounds and cultures. I also love doing self-care, mental health and physical exercises.
