Dr Ada Bieber started as the new director of the DAAD Information Centre in Sydney in January. Before moving to Australia, Ada worked at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and other universities in Germany. Ada also has a background as a publishing manager, and as a fully trained teacher.
"I am excited and grateful to be working for the DAAD in Australia. I have previously held a variety of positions in academia and education in Germany, and it is great to bring this experience to Australia while also learning many new things here. Coming from Berlin, where I have been living for the last 3 years, living and working in Australia, in a city like Sydney, is a different but wonderful experience. My new job offers great opportunities to connect with partners in Sydney and elsewhere in Australia. It's fantastic to work with interesting people, and to promote Germany as a great country for study and research. I look forward to working with the DAAD team and all our partners here."
