Originally from Germany, Sylvia Tippmann did not come to science writing on a straight path. She followed her science mind and curiosity, studied Bioinformatics and Genome Research in her undergrad, moved to Australia for the Master's and finisihed her PhD in Switzerland. In between differentiating stem cells, swimming in the Rhine and presenting her research on international conferences she found her passion in communicating science through smart diagrams, sketches and words. Now, Sylvia is aiming at turning that joy into a profession.
