I was born and raised in Switzerland and obtained both my undergraduate and graduate degrees - in molecular and developmental biology, respectively - from the University of Basel.

After my PhD, I moved to Eugene for my postdoctoral studies, investigating asymmetric cell division in the lab of Chris Doe at the University of Oregon.

In 2011, I was awarded a career development award from the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF), allowing me to establish my own independent research lab at the Biozentrum, University of Basel.

In 2016 I moved back to the Pacific Northwest with an assistant professor appointment at the University of Washington's Department of Biology in Seattle.
