Successful defense by Julia Hübner
After close to four highly productive years, Julia Hübner successfully completed her excellent work as a doctoral student in IMPRS-CPQM by defending her thesis and was awarded the distinction "magna cum laude". She performed her project on "Contributions to compounds of silicon and germanium with alkaline earth and rare earth metals under high-pressure conditions" under the supervision of Prof. Juri Grin and PD Dr. Ulrich Schwarz.
Besides her research work, Julia also served as one of the PhD representatives from 2017 to 2018 and we thank her for her service to the PhD community at MPI CPfS.
We congratulate Julia on the successful completion of her dotoral training and wish her all the best for the next step in her career, a position as a postdoctoral researcher in the group of Prof. Sven Lidin at Lund University in Sweden.
