I am affiliated with the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, Cancer Prevention and Control Research, and with the UCLA Clinical and Translational Science Institute. My research areas include cancer prevention and control, cancer epidemiology, cancer survivorship, obesity, nutrition, physical activity, health disparities, health psychology and quality of life. My statistical methodology interests include design and analysis of cluster-randomized trials and other intervention studies and longitudinal modeling of chronic disease processes.
