Julia received her BSc and MSc in chemistry at the Eotvos Lorand University in Hungary. Already during this time, she transitioned towards developmental and molecular biology, and studied nucleotide metabolism in Drosophila melanogaster and epigenetic silencing in fission yeast. In 2014, Julia joined the lab of Julius Brennecke at IMBA in Vienna to pursue her PhD, and there she investigated the mechanism of small RNA-guided nuclear repression of transposons in Drosophila. She joined Alex’s lab at the beginning of 2020 and currently focuses on cell fate decisions and epigenetic regulation during early mouse development.
