Research Summary

My career goal is to improve cancer health outcomes and reduce cancer health disparities among adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancer patients, survivors, and care partners. I have experience with diverse patient populations and an extensive range of methods and analytical approaches, especially in mixed-methods study designs and data integration. My current research establishes methods to study online health (mis)information to improve cancer information and social seeking online.
