Debora studied material science at ETH Zurich. She did her PhD working on the investigation of nanoscale inhomogeneities in chalcopyrite solar cells, at the Laboratory for Thin Films and Photovoltaics at Empa, the Electron Microscopy Center at Empa and the Department of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering at ETH Zurich. Since receiving her PhD degree in 2016, she is working as a postdoctoral researcher within the Cluster project at the Electron Microscopy Center at Empa. Within this project, she investigates atomic-scale particle formation processes by liquid phase microscopy.
