DGNN came as a natural attraction to Alvan as a Nigerian neurosurgeon with interest in global health. The extensive work of DGNN in Uganda and other LMIC’s were the major selling points to him and helped to motivate him to join the group.

Alvan is currently starting his global health thesis project on the use of a near-infrared spectroscopy device for managing traumatic brain injury patients in low resource settings.
