Marianne Schmid Daners graduated from ETH Zurich, Switzerland, as a mechanical engineer in 2006  (Dipl. Masch.-Ing. ETH). Under the supervision of Professor Lino Guzzella, she completed her doctorate at ETH Zurich’s Institute for Dynamic Systems and Control on the topic “Adaptive Shunts for Cerebrospinal Fluid Control” in 2012. Marianne currently heads the institute’s Biomedical Systems Group and supports the Zurich Heart’s project coordination. Her main research interests include the modelling and control of biological systems, and the development and control of biomedical devices.
