My research examines the ways that communication between physicians and patients shape advanced cancer patients' understanding of their disease, treatment decisions, and medical outcomes. I am developing interventions to improve patient-physician communication, ensure that patients' care is congruent with their values, and improves patients' quality of life. I also have a specific interest in cervical cancer and examining how genomic alterations influence patient outcomes at a population-level.
