Research/Areas of Interest: One area of research focus centers on health services research for vulnerable populations, including the impact of having health care coverage on managing chronic disease. I am also interested in understanding behavioral and genetic predictors of cancer risk in under-studied populations. Another area of focus relates to stakeholder and community engagement.
