I completed my PhD in 2018 at ETH in Zurich elaborating the interplay between transposable elements and their hosts. The focus of my PhD work was centred around the harmful effects of transposons to their host and the counteraction defense mechanisms. At UCSF, I continue to broaden our understanding of repetitive elements, but with regards to their valuable contributions to gene regulatory networks. I enjoy to work at the interface between lab work and computational biology and appreciate a good balance between the two.
In my free time I love being outside, playing volleyball, biking, cooking and eating good food .
