Katharina Steineder has been working as a Research Engineer at voestalpine Stahl GmbH in the research area of cold strip development since October Despite her young age, she has already amassed a wealth of experience at the company. So even before she was actually employed, she had already spent four years working for the company. At voestalpine, in contrast, I can see the results of my research and hold them in my hands.
