Cancer Survivorship, Physical Activity, Psychosocial Interventions
My program of research is focused on improving the quality of life for survivors of cancer through applied scholarship. In particular, I am passionate about designing, implementing, and assessing physical activity interventions for individuals who have completed their cancer treatment. Within these interventions, I endeavor to teach psychological skills, provide instrumental and social support, and design creative knowledge translation initiatives (e.g., documentary videos). Current projects are focused on supervised physical activity for men and women post cancer treatment, learning to run after cancer, and fear of recurrence in rural populations.
