Cancer-Focused Research

My research focuses on developing and applying biomarker methods to explore environmental risk factors associated with chronic diseases, cancers, and complex disorders. This work includes both discovery-based approaches using protein adduct profiles to identify unknown risk factors, and targeted approaches using finger stick blood samples to extend the application of exposure biomarkers to molecular epidemiology.
