After completing her PhD in Karolinska Institute, Stockholm in human fertility and early embryo studies via single-cell RNA-sequencing, Elo received the ESPOD Postdoctoral fellowship for further single-cell studies in EBML-EBI and Wellcome Sanger Institute in the groups of Oliver Stegle, Gosia Trynka and Sarah Teichmann. She is interested in analysing and combining large datasets for describing biology. This has led to taking part of various single-cell RNA-sequencing projects within the Human Cell Atlas.
