Sofia Hayden

I am doctoral researcher at the Museum für Naturkunde in Berlin. I am from Chile but moved to Berlin in 2013 to do a bachelor degree in Biology at the Humboldt University and a master degree in Ecology, Biodiversity and Evolution at the Freie University in Berlin. I started my PhD last year, mid of the pandemic, for which I am studying the role of climate in the demographic history of four Australian skink species. In my free time, I enjoying taking my dog for a walk and doing sports, such as bouldering, running or yoga.

As the network treasurer, I will contribute to the important tasks that the network has: creating spaces and opportunities for doctoral researchers and improving our working conditions, always with the intention of covering all the diversity across the Leibniz institutes and improving the inclusion and representation of each doctoral researchers.
