Research Interests

As a social health psychologist, my research aims to understand and encourage health protective behavior. My primary interests are health messaging and cancer prevention behavior (e.g., screening, diet, tobacco). Much of my work has centered on preventing cancers caused by human papillomavirus (HPV).
