Personal profile

Research Interests

I am a health psychologist specializing in research and clinical practice that aim to improve the wellbeing of adults facing cancer or other chronic illnesses. My research focuses on improving people's ability to manage health-related stress, increase their positive psychosocial experiences, and improve their physical health and quality of life through mind-body approaches such as yoga, as well as techniques based in positive and health psychology. As part of these investigations, I conduct mixed-methods and stakeholder-engaged research to maximize our ability to meet the specific needs of various patient and caregiver populations and to understand how mobile and web-based delivery can increase access to evidence-based interventions. In addition, I am working to identify the biobehavioral mechanisms that link psychosocial and physical health outcomes. I currently am Principal Investigator or Co-Investigator on observational studies and clinical trials designed for cancer survivors, adults with or at risk of HIV, dementia caregivers, and adults with chronic pain.
