Hi, my name is Akima!
I studied meteorology at the University of Frankfurt. Back then I realized that I would love to work in the field instead of only sitting at my desk. When I was looking for options after graduation, there was an opportunity to participate in the ATTO project. I thought this was a fantastic chance to combine my background with exciting fieldwork and so I became PhD student at MPI-C in Mainz.
As you can see in the picture I have the opportunity to travel to Brazil as part of my PhD. We visit the ATTO site regularly to maintain and develop our measurement setup.
