Research Interests

  • Cancer risks among workers and residents exposed to radiation as a result of the 1986 accident at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant.
  • In particular, Dr. Hatch is interested in studying thyroid disease among those who were in utero when the accident occurred.
  • Women's health (reproduction, thyroid disease).
