Pearl is a Filipino nurse who is currently a PhD candidate in Health and Safety (Sécurité Sanitaire in French) at the Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers (CNAM, MeSuRS laboratory) in Paris. Her research investigates the drivers of socioeconomic inequalities in HIV testing uptake in sub-Saharan Africa. She has an MSc in Public Health with a specialization in Environmental and Occupational Health and Biostatistics from the EHESP French School of Public Health (École des hautes études en santé publique). Growing up in the Philippines, a country that faces dozens of natural calamities in a year, opened her eyes on how important the environment is to the life of a human being and overall health. She has been active in environmental initiatives and advocacy since a young age, serving as the president of Youth for Environment in Schools Organization (YES-O) in high school. As a Planetary Health Campus Ambassador, Pearl is excited to continue this passion and to inspire people to take care of the earth. Through the PHCA program, she has co-founded PlaHNet - Planetary Health Network of Young Professionals  (formerly known as PlaHNet France) with her friends, with a vision of getting young professionals in every sector involved on Planetary Health.
