Dr. Alba Anadon-Rosell obtained her BSc in Biology from the University of Barcelona in 2010 and her master’s degree in Plant Diversity from the University of Reading (United Kingdom) in 2011. She went on to work at the Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research WSL in Switzerland before starting her PhD at the University of Barcelona. Her PhD thesis focused on the effects of climate change on high mountain dwarf shrubs incorporating experiments performed in the Swiss Alps, the Austrian Alps (in collaboration with the University of Innsbruck) and the Pyrenees. She obtained her PhD in Plant Biology in 2017, after which she gained a temporary position as an adjunct lecturer at the University of Barcelona. Her main research areas are alpine ecology and ecophysiology, and wood anatomy.

Dr. Anadon-Rosell has been working as a postdoctoral researcher in the project WETSCAPES and as a collaborator in the DFG-Research Training Group Response at the University of Greifswald as part of Prof. Wilmking’s working group since April 2018. The high scientific quality and the nice atmosphere in the working group inspired her to apply for the Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship to pursue her own project. “I believe the high standards of scientific research, the dynamics within the group and the synergistic collaborations with other research groups make Greifswald a very stimulating place to work” says Alba, who will also collaborate with the Experimental Plant Ecology group led by Prof. Jürgen Kreyling.

The Humboldt Research Fellowship for postdoctoral researchers is aimed at researchers from abroad with above average qualifications, who are at the start of their academic careers. Applicants must also have obtained their doctorate within the last four years. The Humboldt Research Fellowship for postdoctoral researchers makes it possible for fellows to carry out a long-term period of research (6-24 months) on a topic they have chosen themselves and in collaboration with an academic host of their choice, at a research institution in Germany.
