Research Abstract

My interests in the area of psycho-oncology are in sexual functioning after cancer, psychological adjustment for women at high risk for breast cancer and cancer survivorship. I am also interested in the broader issues related to cancer genetics (BRCA1/2) and sexual function after cancer risk-reducing surgery.
