external scientific cooperation partner, NGN Research Center Klinik für Neonatologie
I am an international health professional with extensive work experience in Africa and Europe. Currently I am pursuing a PhD (DPhil Women’s & Reproductive Health) at the University of Oxford where my research focuses on neurodevelopmental assessments at age 2 for all children born preterm. I am conducting part of my research work at the NGN Research Centre, Zurich and in collaboration with Professor Natalucci.
Prior to my PhD studies, I worked with The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria, Switzerland on its HIV program quality and efficiency, and with the Geneva Foundation for Medical Education and Research to promote sexual and reproductive health education. In Ghana, I led the regional implementation of Project Fives Alive! to reduce children under 5 mortality and improve maternal health in Ghana. I have collaborated with governments and worked across many other projects to promote child and maternal health and quality healthcare in developing country settings.
I hold an MSc. In International Health from Ruprecht-Karls University of Heidelberg, Germany and BSc. Biochemistry from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Ghana.
