Before her work with CTP, Dr. Reyes-Guzman was a Cancer Research Training Award Fellow in the National Cancer Institute's Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics. Under the mentorship of Neil Caporaso, M.D., her research focused on low-dose/some-day cigarette smoking. She also has several years of experience working within the private/non-profit sector in tobacco control research, including areas of co-substance use, health behaviors, and mental health disorders.

Dr. Reyes-Guzman is interested in studying the epidemiology of low-dose and infrequent cigarette smokers, along with their use of other tobacco products and substances. In addition to tobacco control research, Dr. Reyes-Guzman has collaborated on studies of other health behaviors such as overweight/obesity, biomarkers of tobacco exposure, and observational studies of lung cancer and lung cancer screening.
