I am a chemist working as a Postdoc at the Alfred-Wegener-Institute on Helgoland. My scientific interest is all things nano - especially nanoplastics. In my opinion, exciting and important science must be shared, same as good beer, so Pint of Science is a great combination of the two.
I am currently doing my PhD on the beautiful German island of Helgoland, focusing on microplastic pollution in riverine and estuarine systems. Before moving here, I studied biology in Hamburg. For me, the Pint of Science is a great experience to get in touch with science communication.

I´m Christina and I work at the school lab of the Alfred-Wegener-Institute at Heligoland. There I teach pupils about science and how important it is. To reach grownups I think a pint of beer is a good idea. Everybody likes it and it is nice to listen to talks and to discuss afterwards.
I have always been fascinated by the sea, so quite naturally I went for a master’s in marine biology. Now I am a PhD student working in the midst of the sea on Helgoland on microplastics in the North Sea. For me the Pint of Science is a wonderful event to pass on some passion for marine research.
PhD candidate in marine microbiology by day, scientific cartoonist at night. When I am not working on my thesis focused on phage ecology, I draw comics about science (http://mic-robio.net) and support great projects as Pint of Science!

I am a PhD student working on bacteria that live on microplastic. I compare them to bacterial communities in both, freshwater and seawater. For my PhD, I moved to Helgoland, and I quite like living on the island.

Having finished a Bachelor in Environmental Biology, I am currently volunteering for a year at the Institute of Avian Research „Vogelwarte Helgoland“. My main job there is assisting with bird ringing and counting tasks.
I work for the Centre of Excellence, a scholarship programme funded by the Nippon Foundation and by POGO which is hosted by the AWI.

One year ago, I moved to Helgoland and started my PhD in phytoplankton ecophysiology in the context of global change. I was always fascinated by the sea and the role of the oceans for life on earth. Pint of Science is a wonderful opportunity to share the importance of protecting these fascinating bu...
