Research Interests

Reducing cancer incidence and recurrence, with particular interests in lifestyle interventions and biomarkers of risk, as well as reducing racial disparities in breast cancer

My research focuses on reducing cancer incidence and improving survival, with particular interests in lifestyle interventions and biomarkers of risk, as well as reducing racial disparities in breast cancer.

My current research projects include:

  1. A multi-level intervention focused on improving nutrition and physical activity habits, implemented at the school-level and individual-level.
  2. Ancillary study focused on a novel estrogen biomarker in the Women's Health Initiative (WHI). This project examines this biomarker prospectively for its link to breast cancer and will leverage the WHI study.
  3. A project investigating racial differences in breast cancer treatment. This project is characterizing the patterns of care received for breast cancer by linking WHI data with medicare claims data.
