Summary

I am a medical doctor, specialised in family medicine and tropical medicine. 

I am currently working with doctors without borders. Public health, research, palliative care, malnutrition and pediatrics are the domains that I prefer working in but in general I am curious to discover all aspects of medicine and healthcare. 

Hopefully I can complete the master in public health next year, I am very exited to explore this domain further and see what opportunities this master will bring along. 

You are very welcome to contact me for research and job opportunities in any field anywhere in the world.
