Research Abstract

Major research interests:

1. Circadian phase: melatonin / cortisol as biomarkers for cancer risk

2. Shift work: light exposure and cancer etiology

3. Breast cancer: biomarkers, gene-environment interactions, and prevention

4. Gastrointestinal tumors: etiology and prevention

5. Parkinson’s disease: associations with cancer etiology

My research has examined the epidemiology of a variety of cancers, including breast, colon, and pancreatic cancer. I have recently become interested in studying new areas including Parkinson’s disease and its relation with cancer etiology, to further understand biological mechanisms in carcinogenesis.
