I joined the Biostatistics unit at EBPI as a PhD student under the supervision of
Prof. Leonhard Held in May 2016. Before coming to Zurich I completed bachelor's degrees in Statistics and Sociology as well as a master's degree in Statistics at
Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich. I gained practical experience in student assistantships and internships with the Institute of Sociology at LMU, the Institute of Epidemiology I at Helmholtz Zentrum Munich and the World Health Organization in Geneva.
