Andrea developed an interest in Global Health even before her first year in medical school at Heidelberg University, when she volunteered at a charity hospital in Faridabad, India. During her studies, she worked at the Heidelberg Institute of Global Health as a student assistant for Global Health teaching for medical students. She then joined the Food and Agricultural Approaches to Reducing Malnutrition (FAARM) project in 2015 for a research internship including field work in Nabiganj, Bangladesh.
For her dissertation, Andrea investigates long-term effects of exposure to Ramadan in utero on health of children, particularly in low and middle income countries.
