About me

  • Doctor of pharmacology with focus on neuro-psychopharmacology, after PhD graduation I have been active in the fields of pharmacology, Pharmaco-epidemiology, Global Health, and Medical Education for more than 20 years of research and teaching experience. I am not shy of a challenge and particularly enjoy working with a focused and creative team to meet goals and deadlines. I project lead with trust and high expectations. I am fearless, confident and competent and I am delighted to read and interpret science with the purpose of communicating it to the public, clinicians, management or experts.
