Welcome to Shivali !

Shivali has done her bachelor’s and master’s in India. As a part of her Bachelor’s project, she worked on the DNA Binding and DNA cleavage properties of transition metal complexes in the lab of Dr. Anupa Kumbhar. She did her Master’s by research from the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research at Prof. Mahendra Sonawane’s lab, where she worked on the interplay between polarity and adhesion in the zebrafish epidermis. She has now joined the Vastenhouw Group at the CIG for her PhD!

Following the information given by the vice-rector in charge of « Sustainability and Campus », here are some safety measures that must be applied by all from Sep. 7, 2020

 Information on COVID measures at UNIL is available to everyone on the website: https://www.unil.ch/coronavirus/en/home.html.  We give some excerpts and details below.

From Monday September 7 onwards, everyone coming on campus has to make sure he or she has a mask. Wearing a mask will be required for moving within the buildings, including cafeterias and libraries, and as soon as the distance of 1.5 meters cannot be respected.

Each UNIL employee, student and researcher will receive a cloth mask at the beginning of September, which has the advantage of being washable and thus reusable. Disposable masks are also available and distributed according to the rules of each department, as before.

It is also essential that everyone disinfect their hands on a regular basis using the distributors present in the building entrances as well as in common areas in each department.

Finally, the presence of each employee in the building must be clearly announced according to the rules in force in each department or platform. Use of the SwissCovid app is strongly recommended.

 

What events can take place on campus?

A document on the prioritization of the occupation of the premises from September to December 2020 on the Dorigny campus is available on this link:

https://unil.ch/coronavirus/files/live/sites/coronavirus/files/Update/Covid-manifestation-priorites-protocole A2021.pdf

Since UNIL’s basic mission is teaching and research, priority is given to events directly concerning these two fields, such as colloquia, thesis defences, etc. And if there is space and availability, other types of events will be allowed. We should therefore not imagine being able to make up for the events cancelled in the 2020 spring semester, or to organize as many as usual, given the current conditions and the limited capacity of the premises.

During this period, aperitifs and other coffee-croissant meetings can only take place in the food service areas (cafeterias and restaurants) with all participants seated in compliance with health regulations. Aperitifs organized within a given room or department are not authorized.
