“My stay at Harvard under supervision of Prof. Joel Schwartz is truly unforgettable. I had the privilege to work with great people, network with many international colleagues, expand my knowledge constantly, and apply new skills in my 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 assessment using satellite observations, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Geo-spatial and Geo-statistical modeling, machine learning, and advanced epidemiological methods. I hope these experiences would help me to promote public health elsewhere.”
