I am YOUR representativeIn 2018 I took office by election as: Treasurer ADSV (1year term) Representative of the intermediary corps in the School Council (2year term) - I would like to thank you for your votes and am happy to hear from you! Outside of your input, I would like to improve: - more affordable food (as a reference: UZH prices are at 5.40.-) - improved communication across departments - clear and congruent but not outrageous work-regulations (YES to a new solution for PhD-teaching, NO to the first draft!) - better office & shop hours on campus (also outside the semester!) - better communication across hierarchy
I joined the LEB as a doctoral assistant in February 2017 where I am fascinated to learn microscopy and mitochondrial biology. Before, I studied Biology at ETHZ with a master's degree in 2016 and multiple internships from stem-cell research to NMR-spectroscopy. During my Bachelor's I spent 1 year at University of Cambridge where I discovered my love for actually doing rather than just reading about basic research.
Alongside my studies I worked at international Art Fairs (NY, Paris, Basel, Cologne) and a very local farmers market (Lucerne). I had also joined and later founded various student associations around food and beverage (mainly beverage, actually).
Here in Lausanne, my life circles around investigating the organisation of mitochondrial RNA and exploring the mountains in the surrounding - Tour d'Aï & tour de Mayen always in view from my desk.

As a representative of doctoral students and scientific staff, I devote my energy to further enhance our work-place’s reputation - nationally and internationally.
For me the Swiss Federal Institutes of Technology stand for exceptional quality and innovation in both research and education. It is a pleasure to work and study here! And I firmly believe that involving democratic representatives from all instances is crucial for its merit. Therefore I am happy to stand for election into the school assembly. I will be looking forward to hearing from anyone and everyone about their concerns and plaudit that I may integrate into my representational role. One main focus would be to ensure the quality of future PhD-guidelines in the making.
