Humboldt-Fellows at the University of Passau

Humboldt-Fellows at the University of Passau

The programmes of the prestigious Alexander von Humboldt Foundation promote academic co-operation between excellent scientists and scholars from Germany and abroad. The Fellows below have chosen to pursue their research at our University – here is what they said of their experiences:

Humboldt Fellow Mindy Nunez Duffourc

'So far it's been a wonderful experience for me. Professor Fedtke and his team are very supportive, and even some of the other professors introduced themselves and offered their help. Also, I am very impressed with the library and how easy it is to find everything.' more

Humboldt Fellow Asankha Pallegedara

'My host, Professor Grimm, is a leading development economist in Germany. He already supported me during my application and registration process. That showed me that we can work together well and so I decided to come to Passau.' more

Humboldt Fellow Navid Noroozi

'My family and I lived in Melbourne before coming to Germany. Although Passau is much smaller, we feel better and more comfortable here than we did in Australia. We really enjoy being here. Besides the Chair, who offers great support, I want to mention the Welcome Centre: the staff, and I think I can speak for us all, are really fantastic.' more

2014 to 2016: Ronan Crowley, Ireland

Humboldt Fellow Ronan Crowley

'Exactly the expertise needed for my project': The Irish literary scholar Ronan Crowley worked as a Humboldt Fellow for two years for Professor Malte Rehbein (Chair of Digital Humanities). Crowley explores the literature of James Joyce and combines his analysis with computer-assisted techniques (more about his visit in this Campus Magazine article – German only).
