Adriane Schalt is a student at the Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin. She will take the second state exam in human medicine in October 2019 and will finish her medical studies at the end of 2020. Mrs. Schalt also has a bachelor degree in „International Business Administration“, which she acquired in the Netherlands in 2008.

In 2017, she joined the Center for Space Medicine and is now pursuing her doctoral thesis regarding energy intake versus energy expenditure, body composition and changes in blood parameters during the “Yukon Arctic Ultra”, an ultramarathon in the North of Canada. This study is part of a continued project, examining the physiological changes in participants of an ultramarathon in subarctic climate, by Dr. Mathias Steinach. From January to February 2017 she was part of the research group during the field-study in Canada.

Scientific fields of interest: energy intake, energy expenditure, body composition, stress-related parameters.

Mrs. Schalt is also a passionate (marathon) runner, beachvolleyball player, sailor and horseback rider and enjoys travelling.
