Sílvia Fraga

Sílvia Fraga completed her PhD in Public Health at the University of Porto in 2013 and she was a post-doc researcher (2014-2018) at the Institute of Public Health of University of Porto (SFRH/BPD/97015/2013). Currently, she develops her investigation as a junior researcher (CEECIND/01516/2017). She is the coordinator of the Thematic Line Syndemics, Health Inequalities and Vulnerable Populations of the ITR, and is the Group Leader of the Lab Social Adversity and Health Inequalities.

Her main research is focused on social determinants of health. She is interested in studying how adverse experiences, particularly exposure to violence, contribute to creating inequity and understanding the mechanisms and processes involved in the production of health inequalities from early life onwards, with special emphasis on the most vulnerable groups.

She is a member of national and international financed projects and part of the Biosocial Birth Cohort Research Network (BBCR). She published several articles in national and international peer-reviewed journals. She is also the supervisor of master and doctoral students and gives lectures to the post-graduate courses at the Medical School of Porto University.
