I am currently a Master candidate in Latin American Studies at the University of São Paulo, Brazil, studying the counterfeit medicine problem in the Global South. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Law from the University of São Paulo as well. During my LLB, I participated in seminars and conferences on ethics and compliance in the healthcare sector, coordinated the pharmaceutical-governance area in the Business and Crime research group. I became passionate about pharmaceutical affairs and how it relates to public health. Also, I went to Canada for a research internship at the Carleton University School of Public Policy, under the Mitacs Globalink Program. Helping an organization make an impact and spread the word about cancer prevention is the kind of fight that I am delighted to fight.
