Tell us a little about Your background?
After finishing my master studies in Biotechnology in Austria, I decided to hurl into a new adventure: an internship abroad.
Why did You chose to come to Luleå?
Through IAESTE I had the opportunity to join the Waste Science and Technology group at LTU and to gain insight into a scientific field that was rather new for me. Moreover, it was an exciting chance to live in the north of Sweden during wintertime and to enjoy the amazing nature and winter activities that Luleå has to offer.
How did You like working here?
During my work at the Waste Science and Technology group I was involved in an interesting project dealing with the treatment of sewage sludge. I appreciated the pleasant working atmosphere, the good teamwork with my friendly and helpful colleagues and the Swedish tradition of fika.
All in all it was an unforgettable experience that included learning valuable work-related skills, meeting people from all over the world and seeing the Northern Lights dancing above our heads!
