I am a Research Fellow that supports the work of PenCLAHRC. I contribute to projects that focus on applied health services research—specifically, in the area of Older People with Complex Health Needs.
Before joining PenCLAHRC, I was a Research Fellow in the University of Exeter Medical School. I conducted research focusing on (1) evaluation and evaluation tools relevant to public health and (2) interventions to reduce alcohol consumption. Prior to my post in Exeter, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Houston where I managed a social support intervention for Chinese American breast cancer survivors.
My research focuses on the health and well-being in vulnerable groups and patient populations—especially older adults. I am particularly interested in how social and psychological factors can be influential in the promotion of health and well-being. I also study intervention development and evaluation. I use mixed methods (that is, both quantitative and qualitative) for my research.
