Dr. Lee has been studying women’s health and cancer epidemiology for more than 10 years. Her research primarily focuses on elucidating cancer’s risk and prognostic factors to improve cancer prevention and survival. This includes examining cancer racial/ethnic disparities, particularly among Asian American populations. She has been actively involved in the Ovarian Cancer Association Consortium (OCAC) (, an international collaboration of ovarian cancer epidemiologic and clinical studies, since 2012. This multi-site data has allowed her to evaluate ovarian cancer risk and survival using pooled analytic approaches and classic epidemiologic methods. Dr. Lee also has expertise working with registry data and survey data to study cancer and women health risks. In addition, she has partnered with community organizations in Southern California to develop strategies to address the burden of cancer. Dr. Lee is a strong advocate of student and research mentorship and has worked with several federally-funded training programs across the Cal State Fullerton campus, including the Health Careers Opportunity Program Allied Health Academy ( Dr. Lee received her PhD and MPH in Epidemiology from the University of Southern California as well as her BS in Biology from the University of California, Los Angeles.
