MEDICINE AND LANGUAGES ARE MY PASSION
and have played a central role in my professional development. This passion together with insatiable curiosity, enthusiasm for innovation, a propensity for thorough analysis and scrutiny and persevering « research » to find the best possible solution are the main drivers of what I do and how I do it.
