Research Abstract

My research is focused on investigating risk factors for aggressive breast cancer tumor subtypes and explaining racial variation in breast cancer incidence and survival. I have primarily examined lifestyle and behavior risk factors, such as where women live, reproductive patterns, delays in diagnosis, body size, weight change and obesity. Current projects include investigating genetic and lifestyle determinants of breast density in a multi-ethnic population, effects of breast density notification, factors associated with adherence to endocrine therapy for breast cancer in young and black women, risk factors for lethal breast cancer, and racial disparities in breast cancer outcomes using clinical trial data.
