Meet our Scholars


Rosario Espinoza Jeraldo.

Rosario is currently studying for her PhD in the Wolfson Institute.

The PhD programme in Wolfson Institute of Population Health was my first option when applying to continue my studies in London after finishing my Master's degree. I had the chance to meet researchers and staff during the annual Showcase in 2022, and I was impressed with how friendly and collaborative the teams within the Institute were. My research interests have to do with aging, mental health, dementia, and preventive strategies, so naturally having the chance to learn from and work next to different experts across the fields of neurology, epidemiology, public health and Psychiatry was a priority. This remains not only a crucial part of my work here but also proably my favorite thing about being part of the WIPH.

This would not have been possible without BECAS Chile. The scholarship has enabled me to both live in London and conduct research on a project that is truly of my interest, but also of national/global significance
