"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 in areas affected by conflict or disease outbreak and the development of new technologies or digital tools. Graduating from London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, I can easily adapt to new contexts, cultures and languages & I have a great resilience.
