Please let us know why you chose the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics for your research.
When I was doing my Master Thesis at the Institute of Space Sciences (ICE-CSIC), I had the opportunity to attend the 13th Edoardo Amaldi Conference on Gravitational Waves. There, I met some people from the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics and learned about their research. I found everything so exciting and challenging that I decided to continue my career with them.
What would you recommend to a young woman wanting to start a career in physics?
I think there's nothing as huge as the desire to start a new project. However, if there is something that stops you, I would suggest the following: don't compare yourself to others and don't let anyone decide for you.
