Research Overview

My program of research is focused on exploring biobehavioral mechanisms of pain and other comorbid symptoms (anxiety, depression, fatigue, cognitive dysfunction, and sleep disturbances) and developing tailored treatment strategies to reduce or eliminate symptom burden and improve health outcomes for cancer patients. To do this, I am interested in applying multi-omics approaches and behavioral assays in preclinical (mouse model) and clinical projects through interdisciplinary research. Specifically, I am working on the study that aims to assess somatosensory phenotype profiles of aromatase inhibitor-associated musculoskeletal symptoms (AIMSS) and potential influences of psychological and genetic/genomic factors on the development and severity of AIMSS in breast cancer patients.
