Internship, extra-curricular, and other certificates
I value very much the excellent education and the close individual support from the teaching staff during my studies that allowed me to pursue own research ideas and to find my field of interest. A cooperation of the university with the German Federal Environment Agency enabled me to gain experience in the environmental risk assessment of pesticides. I qualified for a traineeship in the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and am now working in the field of pesticide risk assessment at the Federal Environment Agency, Germany.
The broad range of ecotoxicological topics that were covered during the studies, as well as the practical skills I got during various lab courses, really helped me to find my field of interest. During my studies, I had the chance to do an internship in an ecotoxicological laboratory of the Crop Science division of Bayer AG. Now, after my Ph.D. studies here in Landau, I joined Bayer again as an expert for the risk assessment of plant protection products for terrestrial vertebrates.
