My research focuses on reducing cancer disparities through knowledge translation in community settings. I am particularly interested in opportunities to use community engagement, capacity-building, and staff social networks to create sustainable, system-level change in community-based health promotion efforts. I am also interested in the role of interpersonal social networks for supporting behavior change related to cancer control. While in my position as a Research Scientist at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, I have taught courses on theories of behavior change and mixed-methods research at the Harvard School of Public Health. I also mentor students (at the undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral levels) interested in cancer disparities and population health. I also serve as a consultant for the Harvard Catalyst, providing expertise in the areas of mixed-methods, participatory, and qualitative research to Harvard-affiliated researchers. I am currently a fellow in the two-year Mentored Training on Dissemination and Implementation Research in Cancer fellowship, sponsored by the National Cancer Institute.
