I was born and raised in Lucerne, Switzerland. I got my BSc from ETH Zurich in Material Science in 2018. I did my Bachelor thesis in the group of Prof. Markus Niederberger (Laboratory of Multifunctional Materials; ETH Zurich) and was thereby involved in finding a way, to in-flow purify water under solar illumination. After a 6-month internship at Geberit International AG, I started my MSc at ETH Zurich in 2018. Thanks to the collaboration between Prof. David Dunand's and Prof. Ralph Spolenak (Laboratory for Nanometallurgy; ETH Zurich), I was offered the opportunity to join Northwestern University as part of my master thesis.

In Prof. David Dunand's group, I will do research on additive manufacturing of silicon for battery applications until August 2020.
