Marcella is currently pursuing a Master of Public Health (MPH) designation in Epidemiology at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, University of Toronto. She is interested in chronic disease prevention, healthy public policies, and health equity. Marcella is attracted to occupational cancer research since it identifies risk factors that can potentially be modified through occupational health policies in order to reduce the risk of cancer.
As a summer practicum student at the OCRC, Marcella worked on an occupational cancer research project using the 1991-2006 Canadian census mortality and cancer cohort.
