Research Abstract

My research interests are in the areas of health psychology and mental health outcomes of oncology patients. I am interested in the assessment for quality-of-life, psychiatric morbidity, and health behaviors in cancer survivors. My current projects include an evaluation of existing anxiety and depression screening measures for assessment of young adult cancer survivors, a study of suicidality in long-term prostate cancer survivors, and studies of pilot intervention programs to treat insomnia and increase sun-protection in cancer survivors.
