I`m working on my Master study in landscape ecology in Muenster since October 2017. My studies focus on botany and zoology. From May 2019 onwards I will do an internship at the CIRC for 3 months. My responsibilities include participating in the Noulja project as well as working on my private research project. This research project focusses on the impact of microclimatic conditions on the functional properties of certain plants. By doing this internship I expect to gain an insight of working procedures in an international research group and experience the ecosystems and climatic conditions in the arctic circle.
