Research Statement

I am an Assistant Professor in Family Medicine and Public Health at The University of California, San Diego and director of Behavioral resources for the UCSD Moores Cancer Center Bio-behavioral Shared Resource. As a clinical psychologist I have specialized in psycho-oncology and behavioral medicine, with extensive training and experience related to quality of life in cancer survivors and underserved populations. I have training in qualitative methods, use of mobile health technology in research to support behavior change. I am currently the PI of an NIH/NCI funded career development award (K07CA181323) and a newly funded R01 (R01CA225746) of a randomized controlled trial testing the impact of physical activity on cognition and quality of life among breast cancer survivors. Recently I was awarded a community partnership grant from the California Breast Cancer Research Program to disseminate a peer led physical activity intervention to young breast cancer survivors. I am also the PI for a large randomized controlled trial of two sedentary behavior interventions (sit less and increase transitions) that is part of a program project on sedentary behavior and aging (P01AG052352). Lastly, I am site PI for two NIH funded physical activity intervention trials with Spanish speaking Latinas (R01CA159954; R01NR011295).
