A PhD candidate in the field of cancer survivorship, in particular cancer identity.

I am currently enrolled in the Master of Psychology (Health) program and am exploring the knowledge and attitudes of Australian women towards cervical cancer screening. 

My PhD thesis was in the field of cancer survivorship where I explored 1) the effects of cancer on an individual's identity, such as cancer identity and gender identity, and 2) the public or lay understanding of these identities and its consequences. A digital copy is available here.

Other research interests include psychoneuroimmunology, juvenile justice and student migration.
