Your BRF Chairs
Lukas is 21 years old and studies economics at the university of Hamburg in his third year. He is captured in the parallel universe called MUN for five years now and his fascination has not decreased since then. When he is not studying or doing MUN-stuff, he spends his time reading or cooking for him and his friends. He very much looks forward to chair the OBOR forum at this year’s OxiMUN and is thrilled to see you in October for three days of intense and controversial debate.
