About Me


Improve Global Health! - Learn from other cultures!


My friends would say I'm one of the most easiest persons to get along with. I go through life trying to understand every point of view and validating it, and learning from others in the process. They would say I love to travel and that I can't be still in one place. They would say eventhough I'm a scientist, I'm an artist at heart (But I think science is art, too!). They would say I'm someone they can rely on. I am trusthworthy and i trust easily (I know, not so good at times!). I live under some brazilian's song motto: "If I had more soul to give I would give it, that for me means to live".


Learning: I love learning, whatever field it is.
Art: Painting, Theather, Literature, Photography, Architecture, I like producing it and admiring it.
Music: It had to have a space of its own. I'm obsessed with music, especially folk music from different cultures, classical, jazz, Bosa Nova, world Music, middle eastern music, eastern europe, south america, central america... ahh.
Science and research: I might sound nerdy but i'm fond of it. It's my job but also my hobby.
Health, global health. Same as above. My dayly job, my passion.
Antophology, History: Topics that get me absolutely excited. My family is a great provider of these amazing talks, by the way.
Lastly but not less important: Traveling!!! I want to keep traveling all my life, even when I have kids, I will drag them with me :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I was 14 and was spending summer vacation in Salvador, Bahia. I attended an authentic Candomble ritual where I heard things that weren't there and saw spirits running through the beach... And other things that I cant tell in private, lol.

Cusco. I got to live in Cusco, Perú in my last year of university practicing in local hospitals and projects. Besides walking to Machu Picchu for 4 days, I discovered that Cusco's magical charm is underneath every stone, every mountain, every street in the city. In the first hours of the morning driving to some lost, poor comunity defeated by social injustice and in the smile of its people and in the Quechua words in the tongues of its kids. Getting to work with this people and authorities and seeing some little changes and improvement. Late at night, coming back from a hard day of work in those rural communities seeing the lightings strike the peaks of sacred mountains and feeling there was something ELSE about that amazing land. If you go to Cusco with open eyes, you will be touched forever.
