I have engaged in several research projects, but my most recent work, since 2010, has been focused on thyroid cancer and thyroid nodules in children.
Because research in children is so spotty on the topic of thyroid nodules, I embarked on a major project to examine the factors that impact the risk of thyroid cancer in children, which will allow us to more confidently determine the best ways to manage children with these nodules. This project is part of my thesis for a Master of Science in Clinical Epidemiology from the University of Pennsylvania Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics; the study is ongoing findings should be published in late 2015.
Additionally, I have engaged in a study examining the surgical outcomes of children who have thyroid disease with a specific emphasis on the adverse effects of surgery for different indications.
