Short bio

I am a Registered Nurse, MSc in Nursing (University of Campinas, Brazil) and PhD in Health Sciences (University of Nottingham, United Kingdom). I currently work as a Consultant at the Social Protection and Health Division of the Inter-American Development Bank (Headquarters, Washington D.C.). I have also been collaborating as Senior Researcher for STRiDE (Strengthening Responses to Dementia in Middle-Income Countries), and as External Adviser and Consultant on Long-Term Care Policy, Dementia, and Health Systems for World Health Organization (Geneva, Switzerland).

Research interests

I am interested in qualitative and quantitative research on two main topics: 1. long-term care for older people, including policy, systems and service development, as well as unpaid care; and 2. stigma related to dementia and ageism and how these the lives of older people and the broader community.
