Jacqueline is a nutritionist, working with clinical and dietary data since 2011. Most of her experience comes from a clinical trial assessing the effects of a Brazilian Diet in preventing cardiovascular disease (BALANCE trial). In 2017, she was awarded a Chevening Scholarship for an MSc in Health Data Science at The University of Manchester. She has worked in a partnership with Brazilian and UK universities, exploring the Brazilian food basket's temporal trends and environmental impact. She is now working with Dr Rafael de Oliveira Silva and Prof Dominic Moran to evaluate sustainable dietary transitions in Brazil, comparing the economic, environmental and social impacts of baseline diets with less meat-heavy diets.
