As a nurse and lab technician with a Public Health Master degree and eleven years of experience in the management of field and laboratory research in Peru, I have developed a committed interest in the optimization of data management for complex population base studies. My ongoing projects include data management activities in large longitudinal studies of malaria, enteric diseases, nutrition and clinical trials done under IND.
