Current Research Interests
Emily’s primary collaboration is with Dr. Helena Furberg. Their work has focused on the impact of smoking intensity and duration on prognosis in urologic cancers. They are also actively investigating the role of BMI on prognosis among patients with kidney cancer. Emily has also collaborated with Dr. Chaya Moskowitz on a variety of projects with the Radiology Service, with a focus on evaluating the inter- and intra-rater reliability of tumor measurements from MRI or CT scan and determining the sensitivity and specificity of diagnostic imaging in numerous cancers. Finally, Emily collaborates with Dr. Colin Begg in developing statistical methods to assess etiologic heterogeneity.
