Accompanying his medical studies, he was active in the German Medical Students Association (bvmd e.V.) and its European and international affiliations, serving as National Public Health Officer and a member of the executive board coordinating the association’s external relations. As part of the Globalisation and Health Initiative (GandHI), he worked on a preparatory book for students interested in elective and internships abroad, sensitizing for public and global health issues.
