How did you learn about the UFZ?

I learned about the UFZ in my summer school of Bioinformatics at University of Ljubljana, where we had a guest lecturer, who is currently my supervisor.

Why did you come to the UFZ?

I came to UFZ because I think this is a great opportunity to expand my knowledge and dive into the world of bioinformatics, biostatistics and databases.

What do you like about the city you live in?
