I am a 5th year clinical psychology doctoral student in the Grief, Loss and Social Stress laboratory under the supervision of Dr. Mary-Frances O'Connor. My research and clinical interests include behavioral medicine, psycho-oncology and intervention science. My background in grief and bereavement informs my current work in psycho-oncology and palliative care. I am currently leading a multi-site project, collaborating internationally with researchers at Princess Margaret Cancer Center in Toronto, Ontario, to develop a measure of "double awareness" in patients with advanced cancer.
