Biography

My expertise is behavioral science intervention research, particularly in the areas of nutrition, physical activity, weight management, and smoking cessation. My goal is to effectively design (often using qualitative methods), implement, and evaluate eHealth/mHealth approaches for behavioral risk reduction for the prevention of chronic diseases in multiple populations that face health disparities, in particular low income groups. Emerging areas of research interest include developing mHealth applications for lifestyle changes among cancer survivors, promoting proficiency in motivational interviewing counseling among practitioners, multi-level approaches to health behavior change, and promoting advance care planning preferences congruent with patients’ wishes. Together with my colleagues, Drs. Belinda Borrelli and Tibor Palfai, I am also the Co-Director of the Mobile and Electronic Health ARC (Affinity Research Collaborative) at Boston University.
