With a strong personal European identity, Cristina is driven by the conviction that European cooperation can offer a path towards resilient and equitable public health systems. She strives for a vision of society that meaningfully considers the health implications of human activity on people, animals and the planet.
At EPHA, Cristina brings together two challenges that need to be addressed at the European level: air pollution and antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Her work on clean air focuses on the health and climate co-benefits of a just transition to clean heating and cooking. Meanwhile, as part of the AMR portfolio, Cristina is the Coordinator of the AMR Stakeholder Network and supports the work of the Secretariat of the MEP Interest Group on AMR.
Cristina holds a master’s degree in Political Science from the Central European University in Hungary and a bachelor’s in Politics and International Studies from the University of Warwick in the UK. Before joining EPHA, she was based in Bucharest, where she gained experience in the civil society sector and with the European Commission Representation in Romania.
In her free time, Cristina takes salsa classes, sometimes assisting for the beginners’ courses, and enjoys travelling, wondering the streets, and discovering hidden architecture gems.
