Dr. Audrey Schollier has a doctorate degree in experimental Physics. She carried out her PhD thesis in chemical Physics at the Institut Laue-Langevin, a European nuclear science facility and research centre located in Grenoble (France), in collaboration with the Free University of Brussels, where she had previously studied. Dr. Schollier is a secondary school Science teacher (Gymnasium or equivalent) since 2012.
Dr. Christina Schultz is originally from Chicago (IL, USA), where she received her PhD in Germanic and Film Studies in 2017. She previously studied Germanic Studies at the University of Bonn, DePaul University and the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana. Dr. Schultz has taught German language and culture courses, German cinema, Media Studies at the university level. She was an English language trainer in Bonn for adult learners.
Dr. Marion Lohrum received her PhD at the Max-Planck-Institute for Brain Research in Biophysics. After postdoctoral training at the NIH in Washington, USA, she worked as an associate professor at the University of Nijmegen, the Netherlands, as a lecturer at the University of Applied Sciences Nijmegen/Arnhem and at the Goethe-University in Frankfurt, Germany. Dr. Lohrum has been teaching as a Mathematics and Science teacher (Gymnasium and equivalent) since 2010.
David Mains was awarded a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry by the University of York and a Master of Science in Environmental Engineering by Newcastle University (UK). He has worked in the field of ecotoxicology, measuring the effects of pesticides, herbicides and fertilisers on ecosystems. Mr Mains holds a Postgraduate Certificate in Education and has taught chemistry, physics and biology in the UK and Germany.
Dr. Hazem Abdel Karim received his doctor’s degree in atomic physics and quantum information processing from Ulm University. After his PhD, he occupied a post-doctoral position in the department of Biophysics at the same university. Dr. Karim worked as a lecturer at Cairo University, the German University and American University in Cairo and Ulm University. His passion for explaining basic science concepts to high school students is his main reason to work as a physics, mathematics and computer science teacher.
Olivia Lambert completed a degree in Biochemistry at the University of Bristol during which time she spent a year at the Sanger Institute in Cambridge where she worked on parasite genomics. She completed her Post Graduate Certificate in Education at the Institute of Education - University College London and has taught Biology and Chemistry in both England and Germany.
Andreas Sanfilippo studied history, Latin and Catholic theology at university in Frankfurt am Main, where he worked as a student assistant at three chairs and taught in a tutorial. Since 2018 he has been working as a secondary school teacher and teaches history, Latin and ethics. Since August 2015 he has also been running a YouTube channel called “Latiniculus”, where he deals with historical and political topics as well as sciences.
