I am a PhD student in Computer Science at the Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule (ETH) Zürich under the supervision of Andreas Krause and member of the Learning and Adaptive Systems Group. Before, I worked with Stefanie Jegelka as a Master student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). During my Master’s studies in Computational Biology, I also interned at IBM Research Zürich in the Computational Systems Biology Group. My research focuses on dynamic optimal transport and optimal transport across incomparable domains with applications in single-cell genomics and protein design.

Throughout my undergraduate and graduate studies I’ve been a Fellow of the German National Academic Foundation. For my Master’s studies I received the Excellence Scholarship of the ETH Foundation. I am a recipient of the Google Generation Scholarship and holder of the ETH Medal.

Extracurricular Activities

Women in Data Science Conference (WiDS)

Women in Data Science (WiDS) is a one day technical conference aiming to inspire and educate data scientists worldwide, regardless of gender, and support the women in the field. I was an ambassador and part of the organisation team of the WiDS Conference in Zürich 2018.

iGEM Competition

I joined the iGEM Team Heidelberg 2014 of Heidelberg University. We developed a heat stable DNA-methyltransferase for a PCR 2.0 and designed a standardized intein-based mechanism for protein modifications (BBF RFC 105).
