Ms. Wang, you took up your position as a junior professor in Economics at our department in October. Why did you choose to come to Konstanz?
The economics department has a vibrant and collaborative research environment and is very supportive of junior faculty members. I am very fortunate to become part of the department.
What are your plans for the next year in Konstanz?
Besides research and teaching, I look forward to exploring the area a little more, like going hiking in the Black Forest.
Do you already have a favourite spot in Konstanz?
Konstanz is gorgeous in the Fall. I have really enjoyed walking on the trail along Lake Constance to the “Hörnle”. The old town is very charming too.
