Post-doctoral research fellow, Harvard School of Public Health


I am a post-doctoral fellow at the Harvard School of Public Health. I am especially interested in the potential roles that dietary patterns, energy balance, and hormonal signaling may play in carcinogenesis, as well as in developing and applying biomarkers of risk and progression for cancer that may be modified by dietary and lifestyle interventions. Many of my research interests are concerned with translating basic science research findings into human applications for preventing cancer and other chronic diseases.
