While being an undergraduate, Emma got the opportunity to complete a summer research internship within the RISE Germany programme of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), funded by the German Federal Foreign Office. She was awared a grant (~ 3000 €) and joined the workgroup of Aquatic Chemical Ecology in 2015 as my internship student for 3 months. She spent one month working with me in the lab in Cologne, and another 2 months in Munich at the Limnological Station Seeon, which is a part of Ludwig-Maximilians-University, Munich. Here, she assisted me and the Munich team during the in-lake mesocosm experiments within a research project with focus on biodiversity loss and ecosystem functioning of freshwater ecosystems. She gained lots of experience in Aquatic Ecology and Chemistry and improved her skills in statistics and programming in R. Additionally, during her stay in Cologne, she took part in the Master course “Methods and Techniques in Chemical Ecology”.
