My research interests cover all aspects of the epidemiology of hereditary breast, ovarian and endometrial cancer, with a focus in prediction of breast cancer risk and outcomes for the high-risk population.
My current focus includes male breast cancer, treatment responses and health outcomes of BRCA-associated metastatic breast cancer, and patient-reported outcomes in hereditary cancer patients. I am also interested in the etiology and prevention of prostate cancer, particularly BRCA-associated prostate cancer.
