Verena will complete her Master’s in physics this year. Interested in promoting the sciences in education and in explaining physics and its implications to a broader audience, Verena has taught both university and high school students and is also completing a qualification to teach mathematics and physics at secondary school level. For relaxation, Verena runs, dances – ballroom and latin, and plays double bass and piano. Whilst on the one-year Maximilaneum Exchange programme at Merton College, Oxford, Verena also discovered a passion for rowing. Beyond Oxford, Verena hopes to continue in academia, both with her own research and in promoting the understanding of science in the public sphere.
