Alexandra Klein

Alexandra was born and raised in Bavaria and studied in Munich and Berlin. Currently, she is a doctoral candidate at the Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology in Munich. In her research she aims at understanding how the brain creates and regulates emotions. Her heart beats for communicating the amazing world of (neuro)science to people who are not necessarily as nerdy as she is.

Crew



Alena Lemazina

From Equador searching for oilbirds, passing by South Africa and checking on Mahali weavers all the way to Seewiesen, Germany. She is, indeed, not afraid of adventure! She is in the second year of her Ph.D. in the Max Planck Institute for Ornithology where she investigates the neural basis of the echolocation in birds. In her spare time, she draws beautiful scientific illustrations. She brings her multitasking abilities and a lot of creativity to the science slam crew.

Alexandra Konrad

Immersed in the digital world, Alexandra is engaged in the development of a tool that protects people from the unaware collection of personal information: Cliqz, the no-compromise browser! Luckily she joins the science slam crew and brought along her fast logical thinking superpowers to the team.

Amanda Monte

Amanda is the hummingbird girl. She is on her last year of Ph.D. (hopefully, says she!) in which she investigates how hummingbirds use sound to communicate also in the Max Planck Institute for Ornithology. Communication seems her thing, so she joins the science slam crew with her communicative skills.

Lisi Huber

Lisi finished her PhD in a structural biology lab at the Gene Center of the LMU in 2018, where she is now working as a Postdoc. She is not only fascinated by protein structures, but also passionate about science communications. Since she enjoys reading and communicating science news on social media, she supports the science slam crew with her communicative and advertising skills.

Marita Vater

Marita is working at the Max Planck Society head quarter. She joined the Munich Science Slam team because she loves our idea of spreading science to everybody. The way how the speakers get trained for their presentation makes it possible for everyone to understand their research. With her positivity and engagement, she is our newest and precious addition to the organization team!
