My research has primarily focused on nutrition and cancer epidemiology. I currently oversee the Pooling Project of Prospective Studies of Diet and Cancer, an international consortium of prospective cohort studies. In this project, we are evaluating associations between dietary intakes and breast, lung, colorectal, kidney, ovarian, and pancreatic cancer using standardized criteria across the studies.
Throughout my career, I have been involved in consortial research. I have been a member of the research team for the Pooling Project of Prospective Studies of Diet and Cancer (DCPP), an international consortium of over 30 cohort studies, since 1996 and have been the overall leader of the consortium since 2002. The DCPP provides the largest collection of prospective data from which multiple hypotheses on associations between dietary and anthropometric factors and risk of several cancers, including ovarian cancer, have been examined.
