Career Aspirations:

My primary interest is in cancer-related research that informs evidenced-based and effective primary and/or secondary interventions at the population level. I am currently investigating factors associated with colorectal cancer screening uptake and outcomes as part of my doctoral thesis. By participating in the cancer research training program (CRTP) I hope to develop my research competencies and build strong networks that would help set me up on the pathway to succeeding as a cancer researcher.
