Professor of Global Public Health


I am Associate Professor of Epidemiology and Global Public Health at the University of Michigan. I am also co-Leader of the Cancer Epidemiology and Prevention Program of the Rogel Cancer Center. The overall goal of my research program is to characterize the impact of disease prevention and control interventions, informing stakeholders and policy makers as to the most effective and efficient ways to improve population health. Specifically, I use simulation modeling to assess the impact of tobacco control, cancer screening and other interventions. Globally, I have conducted work to assess the potential of HPV self-sampling as a cervical cancer screening strategy in Guatemala and Thailand, the impact of tobacco control in LMICs, and the impact of sugary drink taxes on diabetes risk in Mexico.
