A journey through the natural sciences with female PhD students
For this third edition (this time online) at the University of Potsdam of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science 2021 seven female PhD students of the Faculty of Science and the Digital Engineering Faculty will take us on a journey through their discipline and career, might it be including chemistry, data science, environmental science, nutritional science and mathematics. They will provide an insight into their research work in the form of 10-minute presentations in either English or German.
