Research Interests

My major research focus is on the molecular epidemiology of pathogens and our immune response to them that may be associated with cancer development and prognosis. I am also interested in the role that chronic subclinical immune disregulation (such as occurs with age, obesity, physical inactivity, hormone fluctuation, and UV exposure) and sex differences may play in carcinogenesis.
