My primary research focus is in biobehavioral interactions in persons with cancer and neurologic conditions. I am particularly interested in the area of neuro-oncology, working with both patients and family caregivers to improve outcomes and health care delivery.

I have taught on the undergraduate and graduate level and currently teach Professional Development in the doctoral program.
