Research information:

For several years I have been conducting research in the field of psychosocial oncology, that is the study of how cancer affects patients and their loved ones. With a growing number of cancer survivors, attention has focused on quality of life post treatment issues. I study commonly encountered difficulties among cancer survivors such as fear of cancer recurrence, stigma, impaired sexuality, and family adjustment. Our ultimate goal is to develop evidence-based intervention for cancer survivors who experience these difficulties.
