Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research focuses on improving our understanding of patients' experiences receiving treatment for blood cancer. By better understanding issues that impact patients' quality of life, such as the most common or bothersome symptoms that happen during or after treatment, I hope to improve the overall experience of living with, and being treated for, various blood cancers like leukemia or lymphoma. I am also working to better integrate the expertise of palliative care specialists into the care of patients with blood cancers. Palliative care can help patients improve or maintain quality of life while undergoing cancer treatment.
