I am a postdoc in the QuaDBio lab at ETH Zürich and I work on human retina and brain organoids, beautiful new in vitro systems to study human development and diseases.
In 2020, I became a member of the 500WS Zurich Pod coordination team to increase gender equality in academia and fight gender harassment.
I am also a member of TWIST Basel, which connects students and postdocs in the Basel Area. I helped promote the new menstruation stations at ETH (which I hope will spread to other universities!) and organized the Thursday TWIST together with FEMtrepreneurs to showcase female CEOs of Swiss startups.
As someone once told me: “Be the change you want to see.”
