Curiosity about the big and small “wonders” of the world and the joy of discovering and
learning something new about them every day are what led Clara Egner into choosing a
path in science. After finishing her BSc in Technical Physics she is now studying
Biomedical Engineering at the Technical University of Vienna. What fascinates her most
about her field of study is the interdisciplinary nature: understanding all different aspects
that make up the processes driving the human body. Besides, she is working as Data
Scientist and Analyst.
To her, science communication is just as important as research. Her goal is to spread
enthusiasm for science and to show that even subjects like statistics – something
essential for any field and the topic of her science slam – can be intriguing if you give
them a chance. She is also a passionate competitive dancer and traveller.
