Martin Schmidt is an agricultural and soil scientist by training. Currently, he does his PhD in environmental modelling at the Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research and is a visiting scientist at the University of British Columbia. Beyond his interest in the functioning of science he devotes himself to the people behind it, for example as the former representative of the doctoral researchers in the Leibniz Association and at ZALF. One of the most important things to him is the integrity of science.
