Current Pediatric Epidemiology Fellows
Aubrey Hubbard, MPH
Aubrey received her MPH in Epidemiology from The George Washington University in May 2016. During her degree, she conducted data analysis on genetic data for the Diabetes Prevention Program and immediately following she transitioned into data collection and management for clinical trials to prevent preterm birth. She began her fellowship training and PhD in Fall of 2017. Her primary research interests are in the genetic and epi-genetic etiology of childhood cancers and further exploration of the link between childhood cancer and very low birthweight. She will be researching these topics under Dr. Poynter.
Taumoha Ghosh, MD
I am currently a fellow in the Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology and Bone Marrow Transplant at the University of Minnesota. After earning my medical degree from St. George's University in Grenada, West Indies and completing their Global Scholars Program in Newcastle Upon Tyne, England, I pursued my pediatric residency at the University of Maryland in Baltimore, Maryland and stayed on for an additional year as chief resident. During residency, I cared for many hematology patients and pursued clinical research in sickle cell disease. My current research, under the mentorship of Dr. Lucie Turcotte and Dr. Peter Gordon is focused on the role of obesity in the incidence and outcomes of pediatric leukemia.
Diana Lone, DO
I am currently a fellow in pediatric hematology/oncology and bone marrow transplant at the University of Minnesota. I earned my medical degree at Midwestern University/Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed residency in general pediatrics at Advocate Children's Hospital/Lutheran General Hospital in Illinois. Throughout this training, I developed an interest in treating children with cancer and survivorship. Under the mentorship of Dr. Jen Poynter, I will be researching late effects experienced by survivors of pediatric germ cell tumors.
Lindsay Williams, PhD
Lindsay A. Williams completed her PhD at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the Department of Epidemiology. Mentored by Dr. Melissa Troester, she studied the molecular epidemiology of breast cancer by using traditional epidemiologic methods while incorporating novel data types including various tumor tissue gene expression signatures and digital image analysis of tumor tissue specimens. Her dissertation characterized etiologic differences in histologic and molecular subtypes of breast cancer with respect to reproductive risk factors.
Prior to attending UNC, Lindsay received her BS from Iowa State University in Biology with a minor in Statistics. She went on to complete her MPH at the University of Minnesota under the mentorship of Dr. Heather Nelson studying environmentally induced cancers. Then, she spent two years working at the International Epidemiology Institute with Dr. Bill Blot in Rockville, Maryland on the Southern Community Cohort Study. Her current work in childhood cancer, including germ cell tumors and acute lymphoblastic leukemia, focuses on identifying etiologic differences in histologic and molecular subtypes of both tumor types. Her primary mentors for her postdoctoral fellowship are Dr. Jenny Poynter and Dr. Logan Spector.
