Michaela Arztmann - ESR3

Michaela Arztmann is an Early Stage Researcher at Utrecht University. She is investigating how interest for chemistry and chemical engineering can be stimulated at an early age in a diverse target group and how it can be sustained.
Michaela graduated from University of Graz in 2016, where she studied Inclusive Education and Educational Sciences.
During her time as an undergraduate student she particularly developed an interest in Educational Psychology, Child Development and Behavioral Biology. After enrolling in the Master’s program Inclusive Education, Michaela conducted research on procrastination behavior among students and on effects of bullying and victimization experiences in children. Additionally, she has served as a Research Assistant at the Signal Processing and Speech Communication (SPSC) Laboratory of Graz University of Technology and participated in a Joint Study Program to study at Sogang University in the Department of Psychology.
After obtaining a Master of Science degree in Inclusive Education, Michaela felt that practical work experience could be an asset before continuing a career in research. Therefore she has been working as a Special Needs Educator implementing ICF in middle schools. Looking for a chance to grow, she moved to Seoul to work as a Coordinator for Special Needs and Dyslexia in an international school, where she, e.g. supervised teachers on new teaching methods with key focus on raising aspiration of students.
