Bruna obtained her PhD in Clinical Epidemiology at the University of Southampton in the UK. During her PhD, she led the analysis of several projects, including an international study investigating genotype-phenotype associations in a rare genetic disease using topological data analysis. Bruna’s current research focuses on investigating the effects of DDT and other lipophilic persistent organic pollutants on health outcomes such as weight loss and insulin resistant in a cohort of post-bariatric surgery adolescents.
