I am interested in understanding how cancer alters neurobiology and behavior. More specifically, my work focuses on delineating the interactions between mammary tumors and estrogens and how these affect the brain and behavior, with the goal of understanding the comorbidities breast cancer patients face so we can provide interventions to increase their quality of life during and after their cancer experience.
