"There is no Health without Mental Health"

As an anthropologist & global mental health professional with a dedication for both research and field intervention, I am also experienced in the development & humanitarian sectors. Main interests lie in Mental Health, Human Rights, Maternal Health & areas affected by conflict or disease outbreak. Graduating from London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, I can easily adapt to new contexts, cultures and languages & I have a great resilience.

Current project I am working on:

"What works in response to psychosocial aspects of Ebola? A systematic review to inform collaborative research with Africa CDC in The Democratic Republic of Congo
