What exactly do postdocs at research institutes and universities do? What scientific questions do they want to address? What is their daily work routine? As a part of WiNS’s regular lab tours, female postdocs from the various research institutes on the Adlershof Campus provide an introduction to their workplace and talk about their personal career path – how they got to where they are now and how they imagine their professional future.

This time Sofia Pazzagli, a scientist from the Physics Department of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, will give an overview of her research and talk about her career path from Italy to Germany. Sofia Pazzagli began her work as a postdoctoral researcher at HU in 2019 after completing postdoc positions in Florence and Vienna. She received her PhD from the University of Florence in 2017. Her research area focuses on setting up and developing a new laboratory for single-molecule microscopy and spectroscopy and for the characterisation of photonic platforms designed to control the single-molecule emission.
