My research interests are very broad within the field of health psychology. Health Psychology is the branch of psychology focused on psychological factors in physical health and well-being. In conducting research in this field, my students and I engage in research that aims to better understand health and well-being at both the individual and population level—research that has implications for both public health and clinical psychology. Broadly, I have research interests in psychological factors in health behaviors, quality of life and well-being, and psycho-oncology.
Please see my research lab website for more information: https://hillhealthpsychology.weebly.com/
Students who are interested in becoming involved in my research through PSY410 (Research in Psychology) should contact me one semester in advance to discuss research possibilities.
