I am currently a PhD student in the discipline of environmental engineering, mining, and energy at the Department of Biotechnology in Environmental Protection. The subject of my research is determining the fate of microplastics in wastewater treatment plants and assessing its impact on microbial communities.
My greatest achievements include nominations in the Student Nobel 2019 competition in the category of natural sciences and energy organized by the Independent Students’ Association. In terms of my doctorate, in order to gain skills in the field of detecting microplastics, I was able to receive a six-month scholarship from the Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt, which I carried out at the Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research Dresden. This trip allowed me to work in an interdisciplinary team, learn critical thinking, and broaden my horizons.
