Predoctoral Fellow

Research Interests

My research interests are focused on long-term health outcomes among cancer survivors, including second cancer events, noncancer chronic diseases, and reproductive outcomes. I am especially interested in potential late effects of cancer treatment on morbidity and mortality in long-term cancer survivors. To date, I have worked on projects focused on adolescent and young adult cancer survivors and breast cancer survivors.
