The primary goal of my research program is to refine and inform evidence-based dietary recommendations for cancer prevention, cancer patients, and cancer survivors. As a nutritional epidemiologist, much of my previous work focused on identifying diet-related risk or protective factors in large, prospective cohorts of healthy individuals followed for the development of cancer. At MD Anderson, I am shifting toward more patient-centered projects, targeting diet, obesity, and the microbiome. Prior experience in wet-lab and clinical research has significantly enriched my career as an epidemiologist and translational scientist. Continually learning from my clinical and bench science colleagues, I strive to address questions from every angle, considering the biological mechanisms, as well as the potential clinical and public health implications.

Research Interests

  • The role of diet, energy balance, inflammation, and chronic conditions in cancer risk, treatment, and survival
  • Dietary assessment methodology
  • Biomarker-driven clinical/intervention trials
  • The oral and gut microbiome
  • International and minority populations where new and unique modifiable risk (or protective) factors may be identified
