Ludmila Massango
Branch Editor

Ludmila has been able to combine my education with great experience in different tech companies until I accepted a fulltime employment position as a Junior Bioware Developer. Complementing the impact to science with humanitarian work, I am also strongly involved in the german NGO Aid Pioneers e.V. where students collaborate to present pragmatic solutions to humanitarian crises. Working in a multicultural and interdisciplinary team, combining fundamental research with the drive to tangibly impact the health of patients is the ultimate goal in my career. Therefore, I am currently persuing a MSc in Biomedicine at Karolinska Institutet and exploring opportunities in the field of global health.
