Academic interests: 

My research focuses on 1) reproductive and sexual health, particularly among young adults and vulnerable populations and 2) cancer survivorship, with an emphasis on developing multilevel approaches to improve health and health-related quality of life. My current projects focus on reproductive and sexual health communication between young cancer survivors, their partners, and healthcare providers and implementing strategies to reduce related distress.
