Description of Interests
I am a licensed clinical psychologist and Associate Professor in the Departments of Medical Social Sciences and Surgery (Division of Organ Transplantation). I also serve as the Associate Director of the Center for Patient-Centered Outcomes within the Institute for Public Health and Medicine. In my clinical role, I provide psychological evaluation and treatment in our Comprehensive Transplant Center. My research focuses on the development and application of patient reported outcomes (PROs) in the post-surgical context, with specific emphasis on organ donation and transplantation.
