How I Got Started in Research

I’ve always been drawn to the subjects of math and biology, and after completing an introductory biostatistics course, I realized that I could pursue a career that didn’t require me to choose between the two. In cancer research, , I’m able to apply my interests in a complex field that impacts so many people.”

At ACS since 2016

As a  Scientist in Survey Analysis, Emily Deubler, MSPH works with doctoral level Population Science staff to conduct analyses of the Cancer Prevention Studies and determine risk factors for various cancer outcomes.

Her primary role is to analyze data and apply the appropriate statistical method to answer different research questions. Deubler also assists in the preparation of manuscripts for publication and supports projects with external collaborators.

Research focus and accomplishments

I’m fortunate to work with many passionate researchers who are aiming to better understand the behavioral, social, and environmental risks of cancer, and I enjoy having the opportunity to learn and apply new statistical techniques.

While I conduct research on numerous types of cancers and risk factors, my focus has primarily been in breast cancer and hematological cancers.

In addition to conducting analyses, I’ve also been responsible for creating and maintaining geographic information system (GIS) related datasets, such as air pollution data and measures of urbanicity, which are used to further explore environmental factors that contribute to the risk of developing cancer.

Personal life 

I currently live in Louisville with my husband Craig and our lovable, mischievous dog Clifford. However, as a military spouse, I frequently relocate to wherever the Army sends us. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, cooking, and spending time with friends and family.
