Since I began my university education as medical student I have been involved in different levels of student representation at national and university level, mainly in the fields of student-centred learning, online education, rankings, recognition and quality assurance. As ESU representative, I have participated in the Bologna Follow-Up Group and different expert-groups of the EU, Council of Europe and UNESCO.
