How did your studies prepare you for your current occupation?

"My desire to do a PhD came about during my Master's degree. Because research is being carried out everywhere and all the time, you can't fail to be inspired by interesting projects. As well as this I was involved in a research project for over two years as a student assistant. Along with the theoretical and methodical basics from the seminars, the experience of implementing my own research project helped me a lot.

When I look back on my time at ZU…

"…I am always amazed how quickly it went. But as you know your perception of time depends both on the intensity and the emotional evaluation of your experience. The time at ZU was always intensive – because the university is so small you can't disappear in the anonymity of big crowds. You constantly get feedback and new input and you're challenged on many different levels to keep on developing yourself. I wouldn't have missed it for anything."
