DIGS-BB Student Representatives

The DIGS-BB student representatives represent PhD student interests to improve their working and studying conditions within the PhD program. They act as a direct link between the PhD program administration and the PhD student body. They take part in relevant PhD program board meetings and are also in charge of organizing some of the PhD student-driven activities. DIGS-BB student representatives are elected by the PhD students twice a year.

The current DIGS-BB student representatives are:

“I chose this PhD program for the variety of fields and opportunities of interdisciplinary collaborations with people from all over the world. Being a student representative is for me a challenge to be an active part in our program, side to side with a group of amazing people, helping to create a supportive environment for good science and great friendships.”

“I became a student representative as I am very interested in knowing all the small details of how our great program came to be. I wanted to help improve it even further, build a stronger bond with the PhD office and all predocs, including the very young new arrivals. And of course, being a part of the amazing group of people, which student representatives are :)”

I think one of the greatest strengths of the DIPP is the level of interdisciplinary research. To help achieve such high level of interdisciplinarity, StudReps have their share of responsibility. Whether it is for a new project, seminar series or helping out during annual events (e.g. selection weeks, career days, etc) I enjoy brainstorming sessions with the amazing group of StudReps, which is always a great chance to network, expand our knowledge and, of course, to have fun. Meanwhile, I believe in being active in the society we’re living in and having extracurricular activities to improve our PhD program, making Dresden more ‘attractive’ goes hand in hand with my scientific progress.
