Country: Germany
External Title: MSc Global Health


I finished my education in physical therapy. After working for several years I have realized that the root of the problems lies on a higher level and decided to further my knowledge on policy level accomplishing my Master global health. I am currently a researcher and advisor for a private clinic while following a long distance learning program in non-profit business administration.


The idea of bringing young highly educated disciplines together is in my opinion an innovative necessity to address global health issues in the upcoming future. A motivated mind and fresh energy to work on the connection of one another met also my ideas of how future work relations should engage in the global health field.

I wish that our future partners can mirror their visions in our mission.


Within the network I lead the preparation of funding applications on behalf of GHNGN in order to meet the annual targets for new income and to help achieve the objectives of the network. I advise and support the board in developing high quality grant applications where the proposed schemes would benefit the network and its members.
