Personal profile

Research Interests

I am a licensed clinical psychologist and Associate Professor in the Departments of Medical Social Sciences, Surgery (Division of Organ Transplantation), and Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences. I also serve as the Associate Director of the Center for Patient-Centered Outcomes within the Institute for Public Health and Medicine and the Director of the Outcomes Measurement and Survey Core of the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center. In my clinical role, I provide psychological evaluation and treatment in our Comprehensive Transplant Center. My research focuses on the development and application of patient reported outcomes (PROs) in the post-surgical context, with specific emphasis on organ donation and transplantation.
