Dual career with sports and studies, especially since my doctorate program began. For me, it is important to have flexible working times and the possibility to take part at training camps and competitions abroad. Besides that, it is important to have good and close supervision in order to use the time effectively

Combining a doctorate program and sports is challenging but manageable.
