Paediatrician graduated on 2011, working 3 years in third level hospitals in Paediatric Infectious Diseases Unit in Spain. I studied a MSc in International Health at University of Barcelona & a MSc in Epidemiology at London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine. 

I have worked 6 years at Barcelona Institute of Global Health (ISglobal) as Medical Research Fellow, being 3 of these years expatriated in Mozambique, joined to Manhica Health Research Centre (CISM), working as paediatrician at Manhica District Hospital, a rural hospital in southern Mozambique, endemic for malaria and HIV. I also participated in several research projects, leading and coordinating several of them, mainly focus on maternal and child health, clinical trials of antimalaria drugs and bacterial invasive diseases in children as part of my PhD. 

I successfully finished my PhD focused on mother-to-child transmission of infectious diseases and child mortality in March 2018 by University of Barcelona. 

I joined LSHTM in September 2018 as overseas staff based in Harar, Easter Ethiopia to coordinate a multicentre project called Child Health and Mortality Prevention Surveillance (CHAMPS) aiming to determine cause of death by taking minimally invasive post-mortem sampling.
