Aleksandra Mandic

Fundraising Associate

I am a PhD student at EPFL since 2013. I have spent most of my student life at the University of Belgrade, with short scientific visits to EPFL and University of Cambridge. I am a curious and open-minded scientist, with experience in various fields- from recombinant biotechnology to single-cell molecular biology. Currently, I work on the gene expression memory in mouse ES cells. Otherwise, I love working with people and I am a passionate coordinator and manager. By organizing workshops, competitions and events I try to help students and scientists improve their hard and soft skills, career possibilities and learn about entrepreneurship. When I accidentally have some free time, I travel or paint!

I am one of the Fundraising associates in Innovation Forum Lausanne, since December 2016. Apart from helping with fundraising, I am involved in organizing roundtables and events promoting entrepreneurship and helping researchers-entrepreneurs.
