Research

I am primarily interested in researching the key factors in recruitment, training and retention of doctors in family medicine in Africa and the role of family medicine in the African health care systems. I enjoy travelling around the world. I have always been interested in experiencing other cultures and meeting people with different backgrounds, life visions and interests. Photography helps me to bring this home with me and to share my experiences with other people. I am an active person and like doing sports as athletics, capoeira, acrobatics, hiking and swimming. Since I was young I have played the violin and viola and I have been playing in several orchestras.
