May 24, 2022: PhD-Day at ATB - For exchange and career

What do the others actually do? Does anyone know this problem too? The first PhD Day 2022 offers doctoral students at the ATB the opportunity to exchange information about their research work. On May 24, 2022, eleven PhD students will present the current status of their work.

In productive cooperation, they discuss issues and methods among themselves and receive feedback from experienced colleagues. In addition, Prof. Dr. Christine Lang invites to mentoring for postdocs of the ATB. Finally, alumni report on their path after the doctorate.

With the regular PhD Day, the ATB aims to support the exchange of PhD students and promote their careers in science and business.

The doctoral students deal with the following topics

  • Towards rural small-scale bioeconomy transition in Europe: A technological innovation systems analysis of grass-based biorefinery value chains
  • Institutional change in bioeconomy development in Germany: the role of power resources and discourse
  • On monitoring a bioeconomy transition and its impacts with relevant meso-level indicators
  • Investigating the physical, chemical and biological properties of stand-retted hemp straw and fibers towards the development of an alternative method for processing of hemp fibers
  • Measurement of respiratory characteristics in cattle
  • Identification of Plant Indicator Species for High Biodiversity in Grassland Using Remote Sensing Imagery: A Multi-Label Image Classification Problem in Deeplearning
  • 3D-point cloud analysis for precise structure change detection in trees
  • Modelling and simulation of ethylene in post-harvest storage of fresh produce
  • Agrotechnological, agroecological and regulatory aspects for the sustainable production of apples (Malus domestica Borkh.) in the Shida Kartli region of Georgia
  • Non-destructive kiwifruit flesh firmness measurement using a laser backscattering imaging system
  • Estimation of fruit chlorophyll content in postharvest condition analyzing intensity retrieved from reconstructed 3D LiDAR point cloud
