Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Statistics

His scientific interests lie mostly in Environmental health, Epidemiology, Immunology, Pediatrics and Public health. The Environmental health study combines topics in areas such as Sanitation, Cohort study, Disease, Developing country and Hygiene. His research in Developing country intersects with topics in Poverty, Mortality rate and Gerontology.

In most of his Epidemiology studies, his work intersects topics such as Cross-sectional study. His Pediatrics research includes themes of Respiratory tract infections, Incidence, Diarrhea, Vaccination and Risk factor. His research on Public health often connects related areas such as Socioeconomic status.

His most cited work include:

  • International study of temperature,heat and urban mortality: the ‘ISOTHURM’ project (441 citations)
  • Health conditions and health-policy innovations in Brazil: the way forward (361 citations)
  • Effect of a conditional cash transfer programme on childhood mortality: a nationwide analysis of Brazilian municipalities (282 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Mauricio Lima Barreto focuses on Environmental health, Asthma, Demography, Epidemiology and Pediatrics. His studies in Environmental health integrate themes in fields like Gerontology, Cross-sectional study, Public health, Poverty and Socioeconomic status. The study of Immunology and Internal medicine are components of his Asthma research.

In his study, Leprosy is inextricably linked to Cohort, which falls within the broad field of Demography. His Epidemiology research integrates issues from Periodontitis and Incidence. In Pediatrics, he works on issues like Vaccination, which are connected to Tuberculosis.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental health (25.82%)
  • Asthma (19.14%)
  • Demography (20.77%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Demography (20.77%)
  • Cohort (10.09%)
  • Public health (13.50%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary areas of study are Demography, Cohort, Public health, Environmental health and Asthma. His Demography study also includes

  • Incidence and related Odds ratio,
  • Logistic regression which connect with Low birth weight. His Cohort research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cohort study, Leprosy, Odds, Propensity score matching and Socioeconomic status.

His Public health study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Vector, Epidemiology and Chikungunya, Outbreak, Dengue fever. Mauricio Lima Barreto has included themes like Developing country, Poverty, Overweight and Urbanization in his Environmental health study. His work in Asthma addresses subjects such as Single-nucleotide polymorphism, which are connected to disciplines such as Genetic admixture.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Social distancing measures to control the COVID-19 pandemic: potential impacts and challenges in Brazil (93 citations)
  • O que é urgente e necessário para subsidiar as políticas de enfrentamento da pandemia de COVID-19 no Brasil? (38 citations)
  • O que é urgente e necessário para subsidiar as políticas de enfrentamento da pandemia de COVID-19 no Brasil? (38 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Statistics

Mauricio Lima Barreto spends much of his time researching Demography, Cohort, Leprosy, Public health and Socioeconomic status. His Demography research incorporates themes from Panel data, Incidence and Epidemiology. The various areas that Mauricio Lima Barreto examines in his Cohort study include Propensity score matching and Cohort study.

The concepts of his Public health study are interwoven with issues in Science studies, Public relations and Scopus. His study looks at the relationship between Socioeconomic status and topics such as Internal medicine, which overlap with Poisson regression. He combines subjects such as Psychological intervention and Environmental health with his study of Pharmacotherapy.
