Alumna Sandra Herrmann

Although the geosciences at TU Freiberg are globally networked and the institute offers various specialisations, it feels very familiar in the laboratories and working groups. The cohesion, the joint work and an open ear from the faculty members at all times makes the atmosphere unique.
