She currently works in the Aspen on the subject of orthomolecular biochemistry. In her more formative years, Dr. Bronson specialize in spectroscopic chemistry analyzing the molecular compounds that make up natural hormones and synthetic hormones, looking at how they are broken down by the human body and processed.
