Currently, she is the migrant mental health referent for the project “Barcelona CaixaResearch Living Lab”, scientific coordinator for the project “MENA Migrant Health”, principal investigator of projects targeting migrant women (“Self-Care among Women”, “Detection of Female Genital Mutilation at primary health care settings -ISMiHealth”) and consultant in community mental health for World Health Organization (WHO/PAHO).
