I am interested in using food and nutrition to prevent cancer.  I have been conducting cancer prevention research focused on nutrition for the past 12 years.  Furthermore, I come to the Food Innovation Center as a multidisciplinary researcher having been trained both in basic science and epidemiology.  I am committed to continuing focusing my research on nutrition and cancer and plan to do this in both animal models and population studies.  Therefore, I bring to the Food Innovation Center a unique transdisciplinary approach to nutrition-based research, specifically focused on colon cancer prevention.
