Marianna is interested in chromatin biology, spatial genome organization and DNA topology. Right now, she is working on a project aiming to unravel how long-range chromatin interactions are involved in gene regulation and smell loss in Alzheimer's disease.
Before Columbia, Marianna worked in the Alexandre Reymond Lab at the University of Lausanne's Center for Integrative Genomics in Switzerland. There, she completed a PhD in Life Science with a specialization human genomics.
Outside of the lab, Marianna enjoys mushroom hunting, photography, hiking, and embroidery.
