I am a physician and then I competed a training in anesthesiology, working mainly in cardiovascular anesthesia. At the same time, I did a PhD in Biomedical Ethics and Law and began to to be involved in medical missions and international cooperation. In order to have more tools to face global health issus, I did a master's in Public Health and decided to start another PhD at UNU-MERIT. My research topic is barriers to healthcare access in low- and middle-income countries, but I am also interested in transnational responsibilities regarding global health inequities.
