My research interests within the field of behavioral medicine/health psychology are focused in psychological consequences and self management interventions in chronic illness with particular reference to kidney disease, renal dialysis and transplantation. Most of my work centers on delineating psychological processes that underline patients' outcomes and physical disease course and on exploring the neurospychological sequalae of chronic illness and medical events and procedures.

Research Interests:
  • Psychosocial processes, outcomes and quality of life in chronic illness with particular emphasis on chronic kidney disease, dialysis and renal transplantation
  • Neuropsychological outcomes of chronic illness and relevant medical treatments, events and procedures
  • Self management interventions for patients with chronic illness
