My name is Chiara and I will be starting my PhD in the Reymond and Kutalik labs in March 2020.
Before joining the Unil, I studied biology at the ETH Zürich, where I obtained my Bachelor degree in 2017 and my Master degree in 2019. During my Master, I worked on 4 different research projects at the EPFL and ETHZ before moving to Princeton University to complete my Master thesis in Coleen Murphy’s lab. There, I studied the role of novel Alzheimer’s disease genes in short-term memory, using C. elegans as a model organism.
During the next couple of years, I look forward to working on improving our understanding of natural genetic diversity and its impact on health and evolution.
