Senior Research Associate. I have a medical degree (MD) from Kinshasa University in the Democratic Republic of Congo. I also have master's (MPH) and doctorate (PhD) degrees in Public Health from Umeå University.
My research activities focus on migration and health, sexual and reproductive health and rights globally and in Sweden as well as the application of mixed methods approach in health service research. I am a member of the Global Society on Migration, Ethnicity, Race and Health, the Migrant and Ethnic Minority Health section of the European Public Health Association and the reference group for the Swedish platform for global Sexual and Reproductive Health and Right issues.
At the undergraduate level, I am involved in teaching Infectious Disease Epidemiology and One Health Response (7.5 ECTS), which is an interdisciplinary advanced course. I also teach occupational therapist students how to work with interpreters and medical students on migrant health and health care.
Every year, I supervise a number of students at the undergraduate and advanced level in writing their bachelor and master theses.
