Research Interests

My research currently focuses on creating and testing eHealth supported interventions for patients with a variety of medical conditions. For example, two of my largest current projects are focusing on designing, developing and testing the eHealth supported programs StressProffen, a stress-management intervention program for patients with cancer, and EPIO, a self-management intervention program for people living with chronic pain. Another upcoming project, eCHANGE, is examining the potential for an eHealth intervention program to support people with obesity in long-term weight maintenance following weight loss.

My research also examines the psychological and physiological impact of self-regulation, that is, people’s ability to exercise control and guide or alter reactions and behavior. I have for example been examining the psychological and physiological impact of self-regulatory deficits in cancer and chronic multi-symptom related illnesses. Other research interests include quality of life, coping, adherence, personality and individual difference, as well as health behaviors.
