Research and Teaching Interests

Anthony Alberg is an epidemiologist whose research has primarily focused on 1) cancer epidemiology and 2) the health effects of tobacco and tobacco control. Areas of interest in cancer epidemiology include lung cancer, ovarian cancer, and the excess risk of malignancies experienced by those with a personal history of keratinocyte carcinoma (non-melanoma skin cancer). His research on the health effects of tobacco has included the relationship of secondhand smoke exposure to the risk of cancers other than lung cancer; tobacco control research has included topics ranging from determinants of adolescent smoking to the epidemiology of smoking cessation pharmacotherapy use in populations.
