Clara-Marie Lüders and Yen Dieu Pham are joining our team!


We are very happy to welcome two new PhD Candidates in our group!

With a Master Degree in Mathematics, Clara Marie Lüders joined our team in September. Due to extraordinary skills and grades, she received a doctoral scholarship by the University of Hamburg.

Having an excellent Master Degree in Architecture, Yen Dieu Pham will start working with us as a Doctoral Candidate in November.

The MAST group will thus become even more multicultural, interdisciplinary and – last but not least – more feminine. We are really looking forward to work with these two young researchers.

So, once again, welcome on board ladies!
