I work in public health because I hope to help understand how the environment affects human health and, from this understanding, how to act in defense of the human right to health. My motivation to do this is related to my personal history and is strengthened by the volunteer actions developed at Hospital das Clínicas (2005 to 2007), at the Center for the Promotion of Healthy Aging (2007 to 2009) as well as in the specialization in Exercise Physiology and Resistance Training in Health, Sickness and Aging (Faculty of Medicine-USP, 2005 to 2006). Since then, I have added to my Bachelor's degree in Sports (EEFE-USP, 1999 to 2002) knowledge on professional education and promotion of physical activity through a single health system, theme of my master's degree in Nutrition in Public Health (Faculdade de Saúde- USP, 2009 to 2011). I also sought to understand how the transportation and urban planning sectors influence the health of the population and this was the objective of my doctorate in Nutrition in Public Health, also by the Faculty of Health-USP (2012-2016), in collaboration with other research centers , including the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, where I developed my sandwich doctorate (2014-2015), and the University of Cambridge as a visiting researcher (2015). I am currently with the World Health Organization and my biggest challenge is to advance in urban health issues and develop the knowledge and tools necessary for cities to address public health issues in the process of urban planning and development of sectoral policies such as transport, solid waste, housing and energy. I am, since 2012, a collaborating professor in the discipline "Introduction to Systematic Review and Meta-analysis" of the Master's Program / Doctorate in Health Sciences of the Faculty of Medicine of ABC (FMABC) and researcher of the Center for Epidemiological Research in Nutrition and Health NUPENS-USP).
