Research Interests: The focus of my research is broadly on social stressors across the life course. In particular, I am interested in elucidating the relation between early life factors (e.g. adverse experiences), residential segregation, and cancer risk in order to determine the most effect intervention strategies to reduce the cancer burden in Black populations. In addition to advanced epi and biostatics methods, I am also interested in gaining skills in geospatial analyses.
