My name is Julia Märsch and I am currently a PhD student in the group of Prof. Robert Wolf at the University of Regensburg. My research field deals with the synthesis and application of 3d transition metal complexes in photoredox catalysis. Since summer 2021, I have been a member of the CRC 325 – Assembly Controlled Chemical Photocatalysis. As a member of this research community, I am able to receive specialized support and develop further skills in my field of research. Furthermore, this research center promotes exchange of scientific ideas and the formation of collaborations. I have already found collaborators in the CRC, helping to advance my research progress considerably.
In November 2021, I was elected as graduate speaker. In this role, I am the link between the graduate researchers (PhD and PDRAs) and the academic staff. Furthermore, I am engaged in the organization of upcoming seminar days and the annual “graduate only day”.
The graduate only day is a team-building event for the PhD students and PDRAs associated with the CRC 325. The aim is to get to know each other better, tear down barriers and identify potential new collaborations. Our first graduate only day will take place in the region around the “Schliersee” in Bavaria. We will stay in the “Obere Firstalm” and embark on a hiking trip in the Spitzingseer Alps.
