Dr. Trang VoPham is an epidemiologist and geospatial scientist whose research focuses on understanding the role of place or location — particularly environmental exposures — in health. Her research interests include geospatial science (e.g., geographic information systems or GIS, remote sensing), liver disease and cancer, health disparities, environmental epidemiology, and cancer epidemiology. Dr. VoPham's research includes epidemiologic studies examining the associations between particulate matter air pollution, dioxin, pesticides, ultraviolet radiation, and circadian misalignment and the risk of liver cancer, breast cancer, and lung cancer using data from the Nurses’ Health Studies; Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results, or SEER; SEER-Medicare; and electronic health records (EHRs). Dr. VoPham is also an expert in developing environmental exposure models using geospatial methods for exposure assessment in epidemiologic studies.
