Martin Hitziger is environmental scientist and management scientist with a passion for systems thinking, sustainability, global health and international development. His research bridges the divides between quantitative, qualitative and transdisciplinary/participative methods. Building on activities in environmental decision analysis and support for impact assessments, strategic planning and stakeholder engagements in the European context, he has several years experience in designing, coordinating and facilitating collaborative research projects for global health with local and indigenous partners in Latin America (http://www.uns.ethz.ch/res/models/macocc). At the section for Epidemiology, he was working at the science-policy interface in advancing methods for complex systems evaluation in integrated health surveillance. In this project, he worked together with the Network for the Evaluation of One Health (a European Cost-Action Initiative: http://neoh.onehealthglobal.net), and the International Society for Disease Surveillance (http://www.syndromic.org).
Martin left our group to work at the UN Convention for International Trade with Endangered Species (CITES) in Geneva.
