PhD Student - Stephany is Colombian, and grew up in the capital Bogota. She majored in Biology at the Universidad Nacional de Colombia, and after completion she moved to Zurich in 2015 to complete her Master studies. She worked in the Wagner lab under the supervision of Dr. Joshua Payne and Dr. Tugce Bilgin, where she performed a data-driven computational analysis to evaluate the effects of tandem repeat sequences on transcription factor regulation. Now during her PhD, she will integrate different omics data from precancerous lesions of the human large intestine, and develop methods to analyze this type in data in order to facilitate its analysis to the community. In her free time, she enjoys biking, hiking and spending time with her nephew.
