Personal Statement

I am a member of the Gynecologic and Obstetrics Pathology and Molecular Pathology divisions at Weill Cornell/NYPH. My expertise in both areas has been longly builted. From 2003-2007 I was a resident in Anatomic Pathology (Universidade Federal de Sao Paulo/UNIFESP) and did my surgical pathology fellowship followed by a master degree in science at AC Camargo Cancer Center in Sao Paulo, Brazil. I practiced as a general surgical pathologist, GYN pathologist and biomarker expert also in Sao Paulo, Brazil (2007-2014) in the largest and most renowned medical institutions in Latin America in both settings, academic (Universidade de Sao Paulo/USP/ICESP) and private hospitals (i.e, Hospital Albert Einstein and Hospital Sirio-Libanes). I then re-trained at Harvard, pursuing a post- doctoral research fellowship (2014-2017) at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI). Next, I did my AP residency, Women's and Perinatal Pathology and Molecular Genetic Pathology fellowships at Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH from 2017-2021).My current research interests include endometrial and ovarian cancers and endometriosis, focusing on discovery of new diagnostic and prognostic markers as well as molecular biomarkers that could potentially be used as targeted therapies.I am a member of several pathology professional organizations such as CAP, USCAP, SLAP, AMP and ISGyP. Lastely, I am an advocate for diversity and inclusion in the medical field.
