About me

Andjela Markovic is a PhD student at the Graduate School for Health Sciences at the University of Bern. Her PhD project at the University Hospital for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Psychotherapy in Bern is aiming to answer questions from the field of sleep research regarding the association between sleep, development and psychiatric disorders. Andjela received her BSc in Computer Science from the ETH Zurich in 2013, her MSc in Biomedical Engineering from the ETH Zurich in 2015 and her Piano Teaching Diploma from the Swiss Academy of Music and Music Pedagogy in 2013.
