Professor Christina Schaeffner shared the intimate details of her professional journey as an academic in the first of our series of Meet the Aston Professor events on the 26th October 2012.
An intrigued audience of staff and students from across the university listened attentively and were inspired as she spoke of her migration to the UK from East Germany and how she started at Aston back in 1992.
Her talk was followed by a question and answer session led by journalist and former BBC current affairs producer, John Mair, as well as questions from the audience.
