“My stay at HSPH under supervision of Prof. Joel Schwartz is truly unforgettable. I was immensely amazed by the great people I had the privilege to work with, network with internationally renowned colleagues, learn new knowledge every second, and apply that in research. Thanks to the support from Cyprus Harvard Endowment Program for the Environment and Public Health, I have learned state-of-the-art methods in environmental exposure estimation using various satellite observations, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Geo-spatial and Geo-statistical modeling, machine learning, advanced epidemiological methods and causal inference. I hope these experiences would help me to promote public health elsewhere.”
