Biography

Research

Research: Pediatric, cardiovascular and cancer epidemiology. I am interested in the long-term health impact of the treatment of childhood cancer therapy. I am particularly interested in dyslipidemia and other cardiovascular risks in childhood cancer survivors. My primary research project explores the long-term cardiovascular and oncologic consequences of radiation therapy to the chest. More broadly, I am interested in pediatric, cardiovascular and cancer epidemiology.
