“Go Figure, The astonishing science of the female body” Author Interview with Lisa Falco – Ep 178
Lisa Falco is the author of the popular science book: “Go Figure! The astonishing science of the female body”. She has been working in the interface between medicine and technology for almost 20 years, on how data can be used to better understand the human body. She was previously Director of Data Science at Ava, a Swiss FemTech startup, where she led a team developing algorithms and artificial intelligence in order to help women get pregnant faster by using their physiological data based on their menstrual cycle. She is now working as a Lead Consultant for Data & AI at Zühlke with focus on healthcare, FemTech and Ethical AI.
This book unravels the mystery surrounding women’s biology and explains what is happening underneath the surface. We all know that the female body changes cyclically every month during the reproductive years, and that it completely transforms during puberty, pregnancy and menopause. However, most of us ignore the fascinating details. What triggers those changes and what are the sometimes unexpected consequences? The facts are as mind-blowing as entertaining. Based on the latest research, all information is presented in an easy to read manner with plenty of anecdotes; from historical prejudices to personal experiences, with some evolutionary ideas in between. But this book is about more than facts, it will teach you how to think whenever you get confronted with new information and how to judge whether new information you come across is valid or not.
