Just got back from England where I spent a week at B07, the new APXPS beamline of the Diamond Light Source. It was an intense and exciting week. We observed a real catalyst in action and look forward to analyzing the data in more detail soon.
I feel incredibly honored to have been admitted as a member of the Young Academy of such a prestigious instituion and very much enjoy getting to know other young researchers from lots of different fields who work in Bavaria. In our focus group we are currently discussing the consequences of the focus on high profile publications for careers of young researchers. Furthermore, we organize many interesting discussions and presentations. If you'd like to know more, check out the website of the Young Academy.
