Research Focus:

Cancer survivorship, with focus on childhood cancer survivors and hematopoietic cell transplantation survivors of all ages. My group is particularly interested in better understanding exposures that influence (both good and bad) a cancer survivor's subsequent risk for developing heart disease and related conditions.
