Personal profile

Area of Expertise

Dr. Felini is an epidemiologist whose research broadly focuses on gene and environment influences on cancer risk and disparities. Her strong methods background is evident through her development of robust statistical modelling systems using data from high-risk populations such as meat-factory workers and victims of trafficking and the sex trade. She has nearly a decade of experience working with interdisciplinary teams in the community to analyze outreach programs. Her work in this area resulted in the passing of Texas Senate Bill 484 and major funding from Cancer Prevention Research Institute of Texas to integrate preventive cancer screening for vulnerable, underserved women in substance abuse centers.
