Could you tell us something about your work at the department?
In January, I started my PhD at the Integrative group under supervision of Maria Hopman. My project aims to investigate how we can promote low-intensity physical activity by spatial planning. For this purpose, I will also cooperate with the department of Geography, Planning and Environment. I am exited to see what the coming three years will bring.
Could you describe yourself in a few words:
Persevere, sporty, competitive, hardworking, coffee-lover.
What do you normally do in the weekends?
I usually take some time to play tennis, spend time with my boyfriend, and visit my sister and parents. In the evenings, I like hanging around with friends, going out for dinner, playing board games, or go to a bar for a beer.
What are your hobbies and can you tell us something about your favorite one?
I like to play board games with friends, visiting new cities and love nice summer holidays on the beach or a winter holiday on skis. Once in a while I like to play an escape room. Furthermore, I like to sport; playing tennis is my favorite one. I started playing tennis when I was 11 years old and participated in tournaments immediately. During my college years I put tennis on the back burner, but I took it up again a few months ago.
Could you describe your best holiday?
A ski holiday in the Austrian Alps is one of my favorite types of holiday. I really like combination of long skiing trips with stops at typical Austrian ski huts. During a summer holiday, I prefer a sunny destination with the combination of being active in the morning and relaxing at the beach in the afternoon. I like both types of holidays and it would be hard to choose between both, but if I have to, I will say a (sunny) ski holiday.
I wish to go to Lapland and New Zealand in the future.
What is your dream for the future?
To stay happy, to be able to do the things I like, spend time with those I care, and have a job that gets the best out of me.
Please add a picture of yourself during a certain activity and add here a note explaining the photo:
This picture is taken (with a disposable camera) when I was skiing in the Austrian Alps (Zillertal) last year.
