About Me/My interests: I am interested in designing and evaluating behavioral interventions to reduce patient and familial distress following diagnosis, enhance quality of life during and after treatment, and promote healthy behaviors in long-term survivors of childhood cancers. I am very interested in incorporating technology into behavioral interventions. My work focuses on adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancer survivors. Current projects include a physical activity promotion intervention for AYA survivors, a qualitative study of parent-teen communication during cancer treatment, and a qualitative study of facilitators and barriers to follow-up care for young adult survivors.

Training Opportunities:Yes – NCI R25 Cancer Control Training Program for PhDs/MDs, but only occasionally accepts individuals interested in pediatric psycho-oncology
