Director, Market Research, Access & Product Management
What I do at MMV:
My role as Director, Market Research is to generate and compile primary and secondary data to provide reliable and timely information that assess malaria market dynamics, such as patient access to care and treatment, current treatment practices, forecasting treatment requirements and testing of supporting material to ensure proper use of treatment.
Why I work at MMV:
I work at MMV because unlike many non-communicable diseases, malaria can actually be treated and I believe it can be eradicated. The toll that malaria imposes on children and infants is enormous, and I am honored to be part of an organization that focuses on reducing this burden.
More about me:
I have over 15 years of experience in market research and business intelligence in healthcare. I started my career with a Netherlands-based market research agency, where I worked for 5 years before moving to Merck Serono where I was Head of Business Intelligence for their Fertility and Endocrinology products for 3 years. Most recently, I worked for an investment company running market research projects for a broad range of diseases in Europe and the US. I hold a PhD in molecular biology and a MBA from Poitiers University, France, as well as a MSc in Biotechnology from Coventry University, UK.
Ask me about:
Data accuracy and data interpretation. Outside of work, I am a board member of Health Builders, a Rwanda-based NGO whose mission is to strengthen delivery of care through infrastructure building and healthcare staff training. I am also interested in discussing tips and tricks to reduce our use of plastic.
