Personal profile

Research Interests

I am a health services and public health researcher. My research focuses on understanding cognitive and psychosocial determinants of chronic disease self-management behaviors and health outcomes. I am interested in the design and evaluation of pragmatic, health system and community-based self-management support interventions for chronically ill adults who experience significant social and economic hardship. Additionally, my research seeks to understand and address self-care complexity for individuals with multiple chronic conditions and bridge the gap between complex medical systems and individuals' everyday lives.
