Natalja completed her Master of Science in interdisciplinary sciences at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zürich (ETH) in 2012, carrying out undergraduate research in the group of Prof. Antonio Togni. She then moved to Berkeley, California to realize her master’s thesis in the group of Prof. Dean F. Toste on asymmetric phase-transfer fluorinations. After an industrial internship in process development at Novartis Pharma AG in Basel, Switzerland, she joined the group of Prof. Antonio Togni at ETH Zürich in 2012 for her Ph.D. studies. Her current research includes the development and application of hypervalent iodine reagents for trifluoromethylation.
