Research Interests

My research interest is in cancer survivorship and outcomes, and working to promote survivorship care that is equitable, evidence-based, and optimizes long-term cancer outcomes. My dissertation focuses on the use of fertility preservation among adolescent and young adult women with cancer, including the impact of fertility preservation on delay to cancer treatment and reproductive success after fertility preservation.
