Bruna is a Senior Research Assistant within the Workforce and Health Systems theme in Health Sciences. She joined the group in Abril 2020 and will initially be focusing on health economics, data management, and secondary analysis of routinely collected NHS data.

Bruna is a general practitioner by background but has been working in the field of health research for the past ten years, of which five were at the University of Southampton. She obtained a MSc degree in Clinical and Experimental Medicine from UCL and is working towards obtaining a PhD in Epidemiology with the Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia group (School of Clinical and Experimental Science, Faculty of Medicine, University of Southampton). In her thesis, she explored different aspects of service delivery for a rare genetic disease, focusing on the application of different methods to analyse small and complex datasets such as topological data analysis, disproportionate sampling and mixed-methods research.

Research interests

Bruna is interested in health service delivery and organisational research, with a focus in utilising novel methods to analyse data and display research findings.

  • Service delivery modelling
  • Health economics
  • Contextual evidence (e.g. impact of different settings and healthcare systems in service delivery)

Bruna’s PhD thesis is entitled ‘Delivering health care for patients with primary ciliary dyskinesia: diagnosis and life-long care’, under the supervision of Professor Jane Lucas.
