Eva was born in Paris, France and moved to the Bay Area at age 9. She went to UC Berkeley for undergrad, and decided to stay 2 more years (because she loved it so much) to do an MPH. She worked in an infectious disease lab at UC Berkeley for 3 years, focusing on drug-resistance bacteria in spinach. She had the opportunity to work in Salvador, Brazil, and Mysore, India, on different molecular epidemiology projects. She went to medical school at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. She is now a third-year resident in Family and Community Medicine at UCSF.
