I grew up at the lake of Zurich and from an early age on wanted to understand how our body works. In my teenage years, my interest in the central nervous system was sparked and only continued to grow from there. That was also the reason why I studied Biomedicine in my Bachelors and now continue my studies with a Master in Neuroscience. Through a course there I found the Neuhauss lab and was particularly fascinated by the project of Nicolas. In my Master thesis I am working on studying the neuroprotective effect of galanin in epilepsy.  In my free time, I like to spend time with my friends, play games and spent time outside.
