Caterina Zampa was born in Bellinzona, Switzerland, in February 2002. She graduated from high school in June 2020 and is currently enrolled in her first year of undergraduate studies at Stanford University. She is following a pre-med track and is planning to major in Bioengineering and minor in Computer Science.

For her research she is working on the design of the Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scanner using Cadmium Zinc Telluride (CZT) crystal detectors to maximize spatial and energy resolution for imaging of small molecular probes. Her project involves analyzing the physics behind the drift of the electron-hole pair through the semiconductor and evaluating whether sub-electrode photon positioning is possible.
