My research focuses primarily on cancer epidemiology. I am currently studying the oral microbiome and risk of upper aerodigestive squamous cell cancer and developing predictive algorithms for colorectal cancer screening.
I also carry out research on air pollution and risk for cardiovascular disease mortality.
