Sofia Vilela graduated in Nutrition Sciences by the University of Porto (FCNAUP) in 2009 and in 2013 obtained the master degree in Epidemiology (FMUP). In 2018 she concluded the PhD in Public health with the thesis “Tracking the acquisition of eating habits in children and its effects on behaviours related to appetite and on adiposity”. She develops her research work at the Institute of Public Health of the University of Porto (ISPUP) since 2010, integrating the ‘Nutrition & Cardiometabolic Health’ Lab from the Laboratory for Integrative and Translational Research in Population Health (ITR).
She was a member of the National Consortium for the development of the National Food, Nutrition and Physical Activity Survey (IAN-AF). Her main interests in research are related with the tracking of eating habits in childhood, its determinants and its relation with the development of obesity. In particular, she aims to assess how different chrono-nutrition dimensions affects cardiometabolic risk factors.
