Report The RUB Research School Plus enabled me to gain unique and valuable experience abroad! During my PhD years, my everyday work focuses on the dissertation chapter I am currently working on and while this is -of coursethe most crucial part of one’s dissertation one occasionally loses a feeling for the research community outside of one’s office. Therefore, I truly appreciated the opportunity to continue my work in a new and different research environment. My research stay at the City University New York allowed me to broaden my horizons through discussions with distinguished scholars, interesting seminar talk and exchanges with PhDs and post-docs about funding opportunities and career paths.
