    I have collaborated on numerous health promotion and chronic disease prevention projects with esteemed faculty. I was awarded the Max Planck research fellowship during my doctoral studies to conduct research on health behavior promotion across the lifespan. Following my PhD, I worked in a multi-national project funded by European Union to implement digital health behavior intervention and became well versed in a variety of modern prevention and biostatistical methods, ensuring my strong transdisciplinary training. After almost a decade of research in designing and evaluating health behavior interventions, I started to move towards the field of implementation research. I am fascinated by the complexity and comprehensiveness of implementation science and helping healthcare systems to implement evidenced-based interventions.
