Petra D.

Master's DegreeGhent University - Belgium

South Africa


My main aim in my job, is to contribute to a better world for children and their families. I am hard working and have a good work ethic. I function well under stress. In a crisis, I can think fast, identify the problems and gaps, think of potential solutions, and take action. I am a pragmatic problem-solver who is result-oriented, and has eye for detail. I value high quality work, and can analyse and structure difficult situations well. Challenges motivate me. My main field of expertise is in health research and management of research projects. I have been living and working in South Africa since 2009, which gave me a lot of work experience in resource-poor areas.
