LIST welcomes FNR ATTRACT Fellow Stan Schymanski

Published on 04/08/2017

The selected scientists are few and far-between: two per year maximum, and for the first time, three in 2016. The FNR has strict criteria and not just anybody can benefit from the ATTRACT programme. It is destined for promising researchers who are not yet established in Luxembourg and who have the potential to become leaders in their field of research.

Stan Schymanski is one of the three researchers selected by the FNR in 2016. Originally from Germany, he prepared his doctoral thesis at the School of Environmental Systems Engineering at the University of Western Australia in Perth before working for the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry in Germany, and the ETH Zurich and Swiss Data Science Center. 

On 1 August, he joined the Water Security and Safety unit of the ERIN department where he is working on the “Water and Vegetation in a Changing Environment” (WAVE) project. This project aims to improve our understanding of the interactions between vegetation and the water balance in ecosystems, in order to enable better predictions of some of the consequences of land use and environmental change for both ecosystem services and water resources.

Prior to the arrival of Stan Schymanski, Cesar García was the only LIST researcher to have benefited from the ATTRACT programme for the "Nano-electronics for pH control and ultra-dense electrochemical synthesis" project in the MRT department.

A warm welcome to Stan!
