Biography

I am a Professor in the Department of Public Health Sciences and the Co-leader of the Community-Based Health Equity research program. My research focuses on using technology to increase access to evidence-based behavioral interventions for adults in order to reduce cancer risk. I have a particular focus on behavioral weight management interventions, self-monitoring behaviors, health equity, and increasing access to rural communities.
