Invitation to the public defense of my doctoral thesis#

Dear friends, family, and colleagues,

It is my pleasure to invite you to the public defense of my doctoral thesis at 12:30 on October 9. However, due to the limitations imposed by the Corona virus only a very limited number of people will be able to physically attend the ceremony. I regret this deeply as I would love nothing more than to experience this moment with you.

For those of you who cannot by physically present, it will be possible to follow the defense through a live stream.

To make it more personal it would be nice to send a personal message with a a picture of yourself, possibly taken while watching the livestream, to the paranymphs at
