Current Research Interests

  • Developing and validating measures (subjective and objective) of head and neck cancer related lymphedema
  • Conducting and testing interventions for the management of post-cancer treatment related lymphedema
  • Developing and conducting intervention trials to minimize symptom burden and improve functional status related to long-term and late effects of cancer treatment
