After 4.5 years of hard work, on 10th of May 2019, I succesfully defended my PhD thesis!
My first post
I am not going to lie: I was nervous. Not as much as I thought I would be, but still. It was my big day and I did not want to dissapoint anyone. The night before, I had dinner with my parents, who came from Munich just to be here to support me. Other friends of mine and former colleagues joined, and of course the whole current workgroup of Aquatic Chemical Ecology came to witness this last chapter of my PhD. And it all went well! I was very confident during my presentation and had a nice discussion afterwards. Once it was over, I was so relieved. The moment my supervisor PD Dr. Patrick Fink placed my PhD hat on my head was unforgettable. I had a great time celebrating with everyone. Even had a videochat with my friends from Queen’s University Belfast! And not to forget: the amazing brownies made by Sandra and that insane cake by Stephanie! Indeed - it was a great day.
