Medical doctor and specialist in infectious diseases. Interest and experience in international humanitarian aid and global health. PhD research into long term sequels after Giardia infection. Main research interest is into diarrheal diseases and work on Giardia and Cryptosporidium diagnostics, epidemiology and immunology, as well as a human ETEC challenge model and characterization of human  immune responses against ETEC.
