My cancer-related research focuses on digital communication, in particular visual communication, related to diverse cancer-related topics: HPV and HPV vaccine, breast cancer, mental health and social support of/for cancer patients, as well as cancer and COVID-19 behaviors, cognitions, and affect. I usually work in an interdisciplinary setting. My research methods range from content analysis, message design and testing, eye-tracking, and other psychophysiological measurements of attention to messages.
