Research Statement

My research emphasis is on women's health, specifically maternal and child health, cancer risk and personalized genomics, as well as the health of women and youth from refugee backgrounds.  Research ethics in the local, national, and global settings are a crucial part of my work.  In addition, research is not conducted in a vacuum--interdisciplinary work is critical for successful, applied research projects that address real-world problems and provide appropriate solutions for the issues of today.

Research Keywords
