Most rewarding aspect of working for the EHFG:
working with lovely colleagues on current public health issues; getting to know great people making a difference in the European public health community.
Life after work (hobbies):
playing with my toddler, cooking, swimming, travelling, skiing, scuba-diving (the last two rather sporadically now since the increased frequency of the former!)
met my Austrian partner when researching sanitation practices for my Masters dissertation in rural Sierra Leone.
