My main research interests are on endocrine disruption and the impacts of environmental contaminants on human health, specifically breast cancer. I am also interested in mixture toxicology and the development of alternative approaches to animal testing (including organotypic 3D cell culture models). Finally, I am involved in dissecting the mechanisms of chemical carcinogenesis (specifically in breast) and investigating the potential role of epigenetics in mediating the impact of environmental contaminants on cancer development.
