Graduate Student, Clinical Psychology
Faculty Advisor: Heidi Hamann
My research focuses on understanding factors that impact the lives of individuals
as they adjust to health-related adversity such as cancer. Specifically, I am interested
in identifying psychological, interpersonal and societal processes that influence adherence to clinical treatment recommendations. I am particularly motivated to address health disparities within the context of cancer and am currently studying how patient navigation systems may improve care coordination.
