General Research Interest

cancer screening, vaccination, health disparities

Research Description

My research addresses cancer prevention and control through two main thematic areas, cancer screening and vaccination. Both health behaviors are effective strategies for reducing disease burden, yet remain underutilized. I am particularly interested in examining the determinants of engaging in these behaviors and designing programs to increase their use.
