Research:

I study changing ideas, both popular and professional, about how emotions impact carcinogenesis and survival time. I am particularly interested in how descriptions of emotions reflect normative ideas about race, gender, and health and how beliefs about healthy emotions shape the experiences of cancer patients. Looking at psychosomatic research will provide a way for me to view common assumptions about patients with different types of cancer.
