I am a PhD candidate at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine supported by the Brazilian Government scholarship programme Science without Borders. I am an Engineer and obtained my MSc in health service evaluation from the Institute of Integral Medicine Professor Fernando Figueira in Brazil. I am a research assistant at the Institute of Health Technology Assessment. The institute has been supporting the development of health care strategies in governmental and non-governmental settings, caring out clinical and epidemiological investigations and economic analyses. I have been contributing with projects in the field of epidemiology and health economics evaluations in Brazil, which have addressed maternal exposure to pesticide, quality of health care assistance, cost of dengue episodes, cost effectiveness of dengue vaccine, and cost effectiveness of diagnosis and treatment of tuberculosis and HIV co-infection. I am also a consultant in Food Safety Systems in the food industry in the Northeast of Brazil.
