Lara Riparip

    Lara is currently a Master’s student studying Neuroinformatics at ETH Zurich and the University of Zurich. She has specialized in Neuroscience during her Bachelor’s, specifically inflammation caused by mild traumatic brain injuries. During her free time, she tries to discover ways to live in a zero-waste society, changing the mindset and lifestyle to become more mindful of our consumption. From fashion to food, our society does not question how these products came into our lives, disregarding the amount of hard labor and energy that was used to produce them; after these products served their purpose, they are often thrown out and left as trash in our environment. Lara would like to change this. Her professional interests are a combination of robotics, data analysis, and machine learning – otherwise you can find her doing hiking, rock climbing, snowboarding, running, or doing yoga.
