About Veronika Wannack

Hello everyone! 

I'm Veronika, from Ukraine, and I am a 2nd year life science engineering student at EPFL in Switzerland. I'm very interested in using my education and career to improve the lives of as many people as I can and I care most about biosecurity and various  measures to prevent and halt disease. 

For my summer research project, I'm working with Marcel Salathé on the applications of large language models to epidemiology. 

On a more personal note, I've done a lot of traveling in my life and I even lived in New York as a child. In my free time, I love to garden - I'm currently in the process of growing purple sweet potatoes native to Asia. I'm a big fan of metal music and love to go to concerts. I also graduated art school in Switzerland before going to engineering school :)

Please feel free to reach out, I'm always happy to chat.
