Graduate Voice & Influence Program, 2018-19

I am a 5th year resident in the department of radiation oncology. Broadly speaking my research interests include understanding social and molecular determinants of cancer and the interplay of radiation. I am interested in studying how cancers disproportionately affect patients of low socioeconomic status, both nationally and internationally.  I have a specific interest in gynecological malignancies and understanding social and molecular drivers of disease progression that present at an advanced stage in ethnically diverse populations.  I also have a strong global oncology interest and have a background implementing teaching curricula for radiation therapy internationally.
