I am interested in topics related to health inequality and migration and health with specific focus on vulnerable populations. I use both qualitative and quantitative methodologies in the field of social science and medicine.
I have degrees in Policy Studies (BA), International Relations (MA), and Public Health (MSc). Currently, I am in the final stage of my Doctorate in Health Science/Public Health (expected 2020/21). I believe sound scientific research can reduce health inequality in the society.
Before starting an academic career, I worked for many years in South and South East Asia in Humanitarian and Development Aid with the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.
Since 2010, I have been lecturing at various universities in Austria and Germany. Below are the courses I teach and taught at the Department of Development Studies, University of Vienna.
- Project Cycle Management and Logframe Approach: Participatory methods (2010-2015);
- Introductory Seminar: Transdisciplinary Development Research (2013/2014/2016);
- Development Policy and Development Cooperation Architecture (since 2016) and
- Global Health and Development with focus on health inequalities (since 2016).
