Celebrating 20 years of the School of Life Sciences and the School of Computer and Communication Sciences, we talk to alumni about their career paths, memories of EPFL, and ask their advice to current students in a video series called “Where are they now?”

Today we meet Samira Asgari, who is an Assistant Professor at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York. Asgari obtained her PhD working in the lab of Jacques Fellay, and her research focuses on understanding the human genetic basis of infection and immunity.

Visit EPFL's YouTube channel each week and be inspired by the careers and achievements of former EPFL computer science and life science students.
