About Margot

Margot is a dynamic and creative jack-of-all-trades. She chose to study Biology (she is currently doing a PhD in Molecular Biology at the University of Geneva), however, focusing on doing one single thing has always been difficult for her. Therefore, her activity within TheScienceBreaker as Scientific Editor enables her to broaden her playing field, while keeping herself informed about discoveries outside of her domain of expertise. Being her mission, Margot firmly believes in the importance of direct communication between scientists and laypeople.

Margot is the editor of 2 Breaks:
