Lydia Zopf


Lydia Zopf completed her degree in Natural Sciences at the University of Vienna, specialising in Neurobiology and Zoology, and obtained her doctorate in these fields in 2015. As part of her doctoral thesis, Lydia focussed on research into infrared and thermoreception in the blood-sucking bug Rhodnius prolixus.

After her PhD studies, Lydia pursued her interest in imaging techniques at the Vienna Biocenter Core Facilities (VBCF) until 2019, where she worked as an Imaging Scientist. Since 2020, she has been a research associate at the LBI Trauma: her expertise includes CT scans, quantitative and qualitative data analysis and the general visualisation of research results using imaging techniques. In addition, Lydia makes an important contribution to the institute through her work on the development and design of laboratory equipment and surgical devices through the use of 3D printing technologies.
