It fascinates me that we can gather data below sea level from times gone by to understand and improve our climate now and in the future, and I’m grateful to be able to play a small part in this.
After completing my Master‘s, my goal is an internship at the Alfred Wegener Institute in northern Germany. I’d love to take part in an expedition with one of their large research ships and learn all about the data acquisition processes. The plan after that is to do a doctorate at ETH and a postdoc at a university in Germany or England, so that I can continue with marine research. My long-term dream is to return to ETH as a professor and pass on my expertise to the next generation. I owe so much to the scholarship. Without it I wouldn’t be able to study at ETH, and I feel very pri vileged to be able to study at a top university. Through my involvement in the Earth Sciences student association and my work as a tutor, I can already give something back.”
