I am a doctor currently residing in Brazil and working as a physician on duty in emergency clinics alongside producing research on various themes and completing my MSc in Musculoskeletal Sciences at the University of Oxford. My research is mainly focused on the use of real-world data to study the epidemiology of infectious and musculoskeletal diseases.
I concluded my undergraduate degree in Medicine at the Pontifical Catholic University Of Paraná in 2021, where I first became interested in research. During my undergraduate degree, I led an internship in orthopedics and trauma at a major Brazilian trauma center, aiding in the production of several different studies. Moreover, I also became a part of a research group in preventive medicine, resulting in multiple co-authorships and authorships in peer-reviewed publications, and national and international conferences. In 2022, my research analyzing the association between handgrip strength and cognitive function during aging using the SHARE database was awarded the Paul Dudley White International Scholar Award for the highest rank abstract from Brazil in the American Heart Association’s EPI | Lifestyle Scientific Sessions 2022.
I have also concluded with Honors my MSc in Translational Health Sciences at the Pontifical Catholic University Of Paraná on the epidemiology of post-COVID-19 patients in Brazil, and have already presented the results internationally in Boston at the American Heart Association 2023 conference.
I believe that scientific research and art should work together to better explain science, thus I also create medical illustrations to be used in conferences, symposiums, books, and publications.
