Biography

My research lies at the intersection of cancer pain and aging and aims to improve cancer pain measurement and management and better elucidate a lifespan-developmental biopsychosocial model of cancer pain across the disease trajectory. Our lab's ongoing studies use a diverse array of designs (survey; consensus-based decision-making; community-based participatory research; clinical studies using longitudinal, mixed-methods, and dyadic designs) and assessment methodologies (patient-reported outcomes [PRO], clinician-reported outcomes [ClinRO] and quantitative sensory testing).
