Masha Cherepkova is a PhD student in the Platt group at the Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering (D-BSSE) at ETH Zurich. Masha obtained her B.Sc. and M.Sc. at the Saint-Petersburg State University in Russia with a focus on stem cells and developmental biology. She then was working as a research assistant in the Biomedicum Stem Cell Center of University of Helsinki, where she became interested in developing new research tools using CRISPR-Cas systems. This interest brought Masha to the group of Professor Randall Platt where she works on improving the efficiency of Record-seq technology to develop next-generation living microbial diagnostics.
