Veronika has a long-standing interest in using the power of computational approaches and single-cell RNA-sequencing to understand how cells age.

Before joining the group, Veronika studied expression variability in the human brain with age as a trainee in Janet Thornton group at European Bioinformatics Institute, UK and looked into the cellular mechanisms of the Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria – rare accelerated ageing disease – as an intern in Oliver Dreesen group, IMB, Singapore. Veronika has completed M.Sc. and B.Sc. training in Molecular Biology and Genetics at Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, Ukraine. Veronika is jointly supervised by Sarah Teichmann and Inigo Martincorena.
