What do your days look like currently?
I usually work from 9 am to 7 pm and spend most of my time in the laboratory or at the microscope. In the evening, I often attend social events or sports at my college (St. Anne’s). As one of the social secretaries at the college, I also help with the organization of these events.
What attracted you to Jacobs out of all the other possibilities you were considering?
Jacobs provided the opportunity to study in English and live in an English-speaking community. This was very important to me because I believe the ability to communicate science internationally is key to successful research. Also, I was very excited by the prospect of living on campus together with people from so many countries and different cultural backgrounds, which was extremely enriching and would not have been possible at public universities in Germany.
