Who we work for
What our researchers say
I have been living in Dresden for over 2 years now and have found that the city has lots to offer. Dresden is just the ideal size for a modern city and offers all the amenities that you could ask for, be it healthcare, education or job opportunities. The scientific landscape is exciting and an open mindset of the people implies that there are opportunities to collaborate with people from the different Max Planck Institutes as well the University campus within the city.

The support I had before and just after my arrival in Dresden was a great help. With the help of the Welcome Center of the University, I immediately found an apartment in Dresden-Neustadt. I did not expect Dresden to be such a beautiful place.

So as to discover a bit more of this wonderful town, a group of researchers travelled over with the S-Bahn along withKaterina. Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate as much with a light rain accompanying the researchers. However, that was not enough to put out the group’s curiosity to explore Dresden’s neighboring […]
I have always been a “dog” person. During my entire life, which is lasting 41 years so far, I have always had a dog on my side, except for two relatively short periods oftime: 1 year that I lived in USA when I was a teenager and 2 years that I have recently lived in Dresden, Germany. I would like to talk a bit about this second period. In 2013, I realized that I needed a fresh start in my research and I decided to apply for a guest research position at the Vodafone Chair, hosted by TU Dresden. At […]
