Dr. Tasker has worked in various British hospitals in geriatrics, pediatrics, gerontopsychiatry, hematology and emergency medicine, as well as in urology and general surgery. In addition, he has numerous qualifications such as pedagogical certificates for physicians, pediatric research, and emergency care, graduating with honors.
DR. JADRANKA CUBRILO
“I would like to inspire you with the fascinating field of chemistry, and fully prepare you for your exam”
In 2007, Dr Jadranka Cubrilo graduated in Inorganic Chemistry from the University of Stuttgart. Dr Cubrilo is responsible for teaching chemistry in English and German, and for developing new projects, courses and experiments for students. Many talented students have been taught by her at the Biology-Olympiad of Brandenburg, and she has carried out scientific and technical experiments for children and students at the ‘Long Night of Sciences’ and the TSB Action Days at the Humboldt University in Berlin.
DR. HABIL. AXEL KOWALD
“Biology is my big passion. Let yourself be inspired and learn the most important basics for your medical studies from me.”
Dr. Axel Kowald focused on the subject of gerontology and continued his educating at the UK National Institute for Medical Research after completing his bachelor and master studies in biochemistry. Specializing in the field of modeling of aging mechanisms, Dr. Kowald’s research has focused on the areas of the interface between molecular/cell biology, bioinformatics and mathematics. He has worked at three German and two British universities, as well as at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics and the Institute for Advanced Studies in Budapest. In addition, he has worked in the biotechnology industry and has received several patents.
DR. SHAHAR GEVA
“I have made it my vision to make it easier for motivated young people to study medicine.”
Dr. Shahar Geva successfully completed his medical studies in 2006 at the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Debrecen in Hungary. Since 2008, Dr. Geva has been the director of the Overseas Medical Education Network.
“I want to make the world of physics tangible for you. Be curious.”
During her education, Maryam was honoured with numerous awards. She was awarded the honorary grade (grade 1) at the University of Alexandria, at the top of her class in the M.Sc. for the degree in physics.
Her current research project, “The Electroreductive Synthesis of Fuels Powered by Renewable Energy Sources,” has already garnered worldwide interest.
PD DR. DIRK ANDRAE
“Chemistry, the Central Science [a textbook title from 1977], is important in many contexts, for example in everyday life or for exams being part of university studies — and it can be mastered well by everyone.”
Dirk Andrae studied Chemistry at the University of Stuttgart and passed the final degree exams with distinction. After earning a doctorate in Theoretical Chemistry from that same institution, he moved to Bielefeld, where he received the postdoctoral lecturing qualification in Theoretical Chemistry. Since 2008 he is working as senior scientist and senior lecturer at the Institute of Chemistry and Biochemistry of Freie Universität Berlin. His rich experience in communicating scientific topics, mainly in chemistry, comes from many years of activity as tutor and lecturer, but also from his contributions to diverse events related to the public understanding of science like the “Long Night of the Sciences” (Berlin) or summer courses for kids at the university (Bielefeld). Conclusion: Chemistry can be made intelligible in general, and the understanding thus developed is an advantage in many respects.
Dr. BALINT STEWART
Dr. Balint Stewart completed his PhD at the University of Manchester in Developmental Biology, before moving to UCL in London in 2017 for postdoctoral studies studying microbial cooperation and warfare using the soil amoeba Dictyostelium discoideum. He continues to publish his work in top international journals and is a passionate communicator of science, wining the Microbiology Society’s oral communication prize in 2018.
DR. SANDY KILPATRICK
Sandy completed his undergraduate studies at Wadham College, University of Oxford in 2009. He worked in London from 2009 to 2010 as lead tutor in chemistry at Westminster Tutors (David Game College).
He earned his PhD in 2014 from the University of Sussex, then returned to Oxford in 2015 as a R.J.P. Williams Junior Research Fellow, also working as a college tutor in inorganic chemistry.
Since November 2018, Sandy is a Bayer-Humboldt Fellow at the Humboldt Universität zu Berlin, where he is investigating organometallic complexes as catalysts for CO2 utilisation.
DR. STEFAN KIRSTEIN
“I offer you a comprehensive introduction to the physics relevant foundations of physics.”
Stefan Kirstein studied physics at the Technical University of Munich. During his doctorate he founded, together with Dr. Ing. Hans Riegler, the Riegler & Kirstein GmbH. After receiving his doctorate at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz in 1999, Dr. Kirstein has held a postdoctoral position at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Dr. Kirstein worked for 5 years as a research assistant at the Max Planck Institute for Colloids and Interfaces and habilitated in 2000 with the topic “Self-assembled composites of conjugated compounds and semiconductor nanocrystals”. Kirstein works as a research associate and lecturer at the Physical Institute of the Humboldt University.
DR. LUIS R. PANIAGUA VOIROL
“Let me take you in a journey through the fundamentals of life, from atoms to ecosystems”
Dr. Luis R. Paniagua Voirol obtained his bachelor’s degree in biology at Universidad de las Américas Puebla, Mexico. He was awarded with the Mitsubishi International Scholarship, granted for the best student of the school of science. He graduated with Summa Cum Laude honours, obtaining the highest score of his generation.
He received a full scholarship from Wageningen University, The Netherlands, to study a double MSc degree in Plant Sciences. During his doctoral degree in Biology at Freie Universität Berlin, he researched animal-microbe-plant interactions and obtained Magna Cum Laude honours.
His work has been published in high-impact journals. He has supervised several BSc and MSc theses and has ample experience as online and in-person teacher of biology, from high school to master’s degree level.
