Katarzyna Nowak was born in Lodz, Poland on 11th of july, 1984. At present, she lives in Zurich. She obtained her PhD in Biology at the institute of Molecular Systems biology at ETH, Zurich and continues to work there as a postdoctoral researcher. She studies cancer-related processes using Drosophila melanogaster (commonly known as the fruit fly) as a model organism. One could say that science and photography have nothing in common. However, they both share a great attention to the detail. Katarzyna developed her passion for photography and for precise reproduction of reality as a scientist, having to do with many types of microscopy on a daily basis. She attains the solutions that she applies in her photography through autodidactic learning experience.
