I am interested in elucidating risk factors for cancer and factors that can impact survival among cancer patients, with the aim of improving cancer prevention at the population level and translating these into improving survival among cancer patients as well. My research activities focus on the independent roles of, and the interrelationships between energetics, hormones and inflammation in the etiology and survival of cancers.
