Dr. Trang VoPham is an epidemiologist and geospatial scientist whose research focuses on understanding the role of place or location (e.g., environmental exposures) in health. Her research interests include geospatial science (e.g., geographic information systems or GIS), liver disease and cancer, health disparities, environmental epidemiology, and cancer epidemiology. Her work has included epidemiologic studies examining the associations between environmental exposures, such as particulate matter air pollution, dioxin, pesticides, radon, ultraviolet radiation, and circadian misalignment, and liver cancer, breast cancer, and lung cancer risk in the Nurses’ Health Studies; Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER); and SEER-Medicare. Dr. VoPham is also an expert in mapping and visualization and developing environmental exposure models using geospatial methods for exposure assessment in epidemiologic studies.
