I am a Ph.D. candidate at the Department of Oncology and the Early Cancer Institute working under the supervision of Prof. Rebecca Fitzgerald. My work mostly focuses on the epidemiology, early detection, and prevention of gastrointestinal cancers, including pre-malignant conditions. I have experience working with large population-based cohorts, designing molecular epidemiology studies, and applying bioinformatic tools to better understand processes that drive cancer. I aim to improve our understanding of cancer to better prevent, detect, and manage these conditions to reduce the public health burden of this disease.
