What I do at MMV:
My work is focused on the Pathogen Box project, which is an open source initiative to catalyse drug discovery for neglected tropical diseases.
Why I work at MMV:
It is very rewarding to work in drug discovery, with a not-for-profit and open source science approach. To have the opportunity to collaborate with a variety of partners, to coordinate efforts to fight malaria is also highly motivating.
More about me:
