Research Abstract

My work is focused on measurement of quality of life. I am interested in the usage of existing measures for measuring quality of life and also developing new measures. My work has particularly emphasized the effects of diagnostic testing and screening, using both typical holistic measures and multiattribute utility techniques. I am interested in extending my techniques into short-term treatment scenarios relevant to cancer care.
