Research Interests

My interests include the epidemiology of cancer in women and children with a focus on environmental exposures in pregnancy, gene-environment factors related to childhood brain tumors, reproductive and perinatal epidemiology, and the development and assessment of methods for measurement of environmental exposures. I am also interested in injury epidemiology and prevention.
