Ivan Zhelyazkov


During his undergraduate degree, Ivan particularly enjoyed taking part in a health diplomacy debating conference. This sparked an interest in public health, which saw him go on to do a Masters of Public Health the following year. Ivan utilized his public health knowledge and analytical skills to critically appraise, screen, and verify scientific literature on SARS-CoV-2 as part of a project from the University of Bern which has published two systematic literature reviews.

Ivan has previously worked in the Intelligence & Insights practice at Prescient, where he honed his qualitative and intelligence gathering skills when working at answering Key Intelligence Questions from clients by interviewing key stakeholders in clinical and commercial environments. He has worked on research projects in immunology, oncology, respiratory and rare diseases.

Ivan has seen first-hand the transformative work teams who work effectively together can do. He believes that keeping patients and people always in mind when working is key to unlock valuable insights. Ivan’s strengths lie in being flexible when challenges arise and bringing disparate parts together in new and exciting combinations.
