About me

I graduated nursing from the University of Malta with first class honours in 2011. Following this I studied a Master's degree in Global Health at Karolinska Institutet for one year. I spent two years working as a research assistant in the research group 'Medicines in the Health System - focussing on antibiotics' where I was involved in projects on surgical site infections and other related healthcare-associated infections in India, as well as the development of a course on the 'Development, Implementation and Evaluation of Antibiotic Use Campaigns' in collaboration with the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), among others.

I am now a registered doctoral student at the Department of Public Health Sciences under the supervision of Professor Cecilia Stålsby Lundborg, and co-supervisors, Dr Senia Rosales-Klintz, Dr Michael A. Borg and Dr Anna Nyberg.
