 Research Expertise & Professional Interests
My expertise is behavioral science intervention research, particularly in the areas of nutrition, physical activity, weight management, and smoking cessation. My goal is to effectively design (using qualitative methods), implement, and evaluate eHealth/mHealth approaches for behavioral risk reduction for the prevention of chronic diseases in multiple populations that face health disparities, in particular low income and racial/ethnic minority groups. Emerging areas of research interest include developing mHealth applications for lifestyle changes among cancer survivors, promoting proficiency in motivational interviewing among clinicians, multi-level approaches to health behavior change, and promoting advanced care planning decisions congruent with patients' wishes. Together with my colleagues, Drs. Belinda Borrelli and Julie Keysor, I recently became the Co-Director of the mHealth ARC (Affinity Research Collaborative) at Boston University.
