Daniel is a 3rd year PhD student in the Neuroscience program at EPFL. Before joining the LBEM, he studied Nanosciences for both his Bachelor's and Master's program with a major in molecular biology and a minor in physics. He has a background in the fields of immunology and ageing, which are both related to neurodegeneration. He works on Alzheimer's disease and is interested in the formation of amyloid beta plaques and tau tangles. For this puprose, he uses correlative light and electron microscopy to study directly in the post-mortem human brain the ultrastructural properties of these different neuropathological aggregates.
In his free time he hikes, plays pingpong, goes for a swim in the lake and he sings in the UNIL-EPFL choir.
