My background is in Internal Medicine and Public Health and while most of my current teaching practice takes place at the UCD School of Public Health, I also contribute with European programs (Euro Public Health Master, EPH+) and a South American research group aimed to improve Maternal and Child Health in vulnerable populations.

Plans for the UCD Innovation Academy Fellowship 2021:

During the innovation academy fellowship, I seek to explore design-thinking in the healthcare curricula further.  I aim to gain tools to inspire students to create innovative solutions to complex challenges in our health systems. I am also wishing to strengthen partnerships with patient advocacy groups, creating collaborative spaces to improve their user experience within the health system. I am looking forward to collaborating with my colleagues at the innovation academy, an exciting opportunity to reimagining the education of our future leaders in Healthcare.
