My research examines psychological states near the end of life in populations with advanced disease and interventions to alleviate distress and promote wellbeing. Some of my work has focused on understanding psychosocial factors, including attachment security and spirituality, that promote adaptation in this situation to inform the development of effective treatments. Other aspects of my work involve defining and measuring outcomes relevant to end-of-life care, such as death anxiety and existential suffering. Lastly, I have an interest in exploring cultural differences in coping and health care process.
