Extensive Research Description

My research focuses on a better understanding of epigenetic mechanisms pertaining to Pancreatic Cancer initiation and progression. I am also developing novel liquid biopsy-based technologies to analyze cell-free DNA in early cancer detection and to monitor therapeutic responses to chemotherapy.

I am also interested in the disparities in cancer outcomes with a special focus on the implications of racial diversity in the molecular landscape of pancreatic cancer.
