I learnt about it from Prof. Hans Hermann Richnow from ISOBIO department at UFZ. His popular name in my research area made me search about him, thus I came to know about UFZ.
Because UFZ is a well-reputed organization in terms of its research findings and progress over the years. I always wanted to be a part of this kind of fine scientific community, so I chose this place for my PhD.
Leipzig is a nice city overall. Its calm vibe goes so well with my liking, so I really love it.
UFZ is a multinational organization, and that, in my opinion, is the best thing about it. I meet so many new people, and each one coming from totally different background. I also like that I am able to keep a work-life balance while working here. It's simply great!
I am also a Level 1 seller on Fiverr :)
