I am a cancer epidemiologist and health services researcher with an interest in the unique issues affecting young women with breast cancer. My research focuses on survivorship, quality of life, and treatment decision-making in this population. I am trained in both quantitative and qualitative research methods and design, conduct, and analyze a wide range of studies. Current projects include exploring why young breast cancer patients are increasingly choosing contralateral prophylactic mastectomy and understanding patterns of endocrine therapy non-initiation, non-adherence, and non-persistence in young women with breast cancer. Additionally, I am involved in designing and incorporating patient-reported outcome measures into therapeutic breast cancer clinical trials.
