Research Summary

My research is focused on understanding and reducing morbidity from cancer and treatment-related physical and psychosocial symptoms. We design and test technology-enabled interventions to improve quality of life for cancer patients and their families. We evaluate new cancer care delivery models that add value. Our aim is to improve cancer patients' and their families' outcomes through care delivered in their homes and communities including families living in rural and frontier settings.
