Research Interests

My research interests lie principally in the field of breast cancer and understanding factors related to its etiology and outcomes using a multidisciplinary approach. I am actively investigating the relationships between various hormonal exposures and risks of different types of breast cancer based on their morphology and expression of different tumor markers. I am also interested in breast cancer outcomes and am currently leading studies that investigate risk factors for second primary breast cancer among breast cancer survivors. Another part of my work focuses on identifying markers that could be used for the early detection of different cancers using various proteomic platforms. Finally, I have an interest in examining disparities in cancer stage, treatment, and survival by race/ethnicity
