Kirsten Emler
PhD candidate, Universität Heidelberg/ Organisch-Chemisches-Institut
Hello, my Name is Kirsten, I am 33 years old and I am a PhD Student in my last year in organic Chemistry at the University of Heidelberg. Before my studies I did an apprenticeship as a chemical labassistent at Roche Diagnostics in Germany. I have a lot of fun to do experiments with older kids and children. I usually use only things from the supermarket, which are not harmful and easy to get. Also not expensive. After the experiments, I explain the reason to them with easy reaction formula. I can either give a look into the University and what it means to study here. Talking about beeing a student, the allday life as a chemsitry student, and the opportunities during their studies and afterwards. If you have any questions, please contact me.
