I am Head of Life Science Zurich (LSZ) since 2017.
At Life Science Zurich, I am responsible for the Communication & Events. I support researchers in science communication and realize outreach activities. My tasks include the planning and implementation of FameLab Switzerland, a science competition, the Cafes Scientifiques, the Science Talks at the Zurich Film Festival or the organization of the Zunkunftstag at Campus Irchel. I work with various partners such as Eye on Science, reatch, Women's Brain Project, Pint of Science and Open Innovation in Life Sciences. I also support institutes and researchers in organizing scientific meetings.
I have a background in science and engineering and broad experience in network management, program and project management, and coaching and mentoring of young scientists. I am also on the advisory board of reatch - Research and Technology in Switzerland and the Swiss Young Academy.
