I finish my Diagnostic Radiology residency in Sao Paulo-Brazil on January 2007. I moved to Boston as a research fellow at the Brigham and Women's Hospital. I stayed there for four years and did three clinical fellowships: Cardiothoracic Radiology, Emergency Radiology, and Noninvasive Cardiovascular Imaging. I became certified by the American Board of Radiology on May 2010.

I join the Diagnostic Radiology Department at Yale School of Medicine on July 1st, 2010 as an Assistant Professor. I then left Connecticut for a few years but returned to Yale in July 2016.

My clinical speciality is Cardiothoracic imaging with a strong focus in patient safety and improved outcomes. My research interests include diagnosis and evaluation of pulmonary nodules, diagnosis and management of lung cancer, interstitial lung diseases, and cardiovascular disorders.
