My research is predominantly in the field of breast cancer with focusing on: 1) shortening the course of radiation therapy for women undergoing breast conservation utilizing a variety of techniques including accelerated partial breast irradiation, and 2) breast cancer related lymphedema and methods that allow for early detection and treatment reducing long-term sequelae. Additionally, my research has expanded into the cost effectiveness of cancer care due the absolute increase in costs associated with the new technologies in my research. Finally, I have worked on and continue to be involved with studies evaluating oncologic outcomes in underserved populations.
