Research Interests

Dr. Jeon’s research interests lie in the interdisciplinary field of applied mathematics, biostatistics, and epidemiology. In particular, her work is focused on developing biologically based mathematical models and statistical methods to evaluate the impact of risk factors on cancer risk, and the efficacy of screening to reduce cancer incidence and mortality. She is an active member of the NCI consortium ‘Cancer Intervention and Surveillance Modeling Network (CISNET)’ in both Lung cancer group and Esophageal cancer group. Dr. Jeon is also a member of the consortium ‘Colorectal Transdisciplinary (CORECT) Study’, and interested in developing risk prediction models using the GWAS and environmental data on colorectal cancer, using statistical tools.
