About Me


PhD research in Bo district, Sierra Leone. Investigating the post-Ebola primary health system.

To understand different societies from an anthropological perspective.


I love to travel around the world and to study different societies, their culture and medical systems.


Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.
