Danielle Tometich

Clinical Psychology Ph.D.
Program

Currently, I am completing my Clinical Psychology Internship in the Yale University Behavioral Medicine Service at Yale New Haven Hospital in New Haven, CT. Prior to my internship, I had been training as a graduate student in Dr. Mosher's Behavioral Oncology lab since 2014, and above all, I appreciated the opportunity this lab afforded me to talk with metastatic gastrointestinal, lung, and breast cancer patients and their family caregivers. Under Dr. Mosher's mentorship, I have been able to publish peer-reviewed papers, present at international and national conferences, apply for internal and federal grants, and collaborate with several other experts in behavioral oncology research. Dr. Mosher's involvement with the Indiana University Simon Cancer Center's Cancer Prevention and Control program allowed me to apply for and receive R25 and T32 training fellowships in interdisciplinary cancer control. I was then awarded a National Cancer Institute F31 grant to support my dissertation research. My current research interests are in patient-centered symptom management, cognitive symptoms associated with cancer and its treatment, and physical activity for cancer survivors with cognitive problems. My dissertation specifically focuses on the effects of change in older cancer survivors' executive function on their physical activity over time.

I received my Master's degree in Clinical Psychology at IUPUI, and my Bachelor's degree in Psychology from the University of Utah. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, paddle-boarding, running, aerial silks, and playing with my dog and two cats.

Clinical Psychology Ph.D.
Program

I am a fifth-year student in the Clinical Psychology PhD program at IUPUI. Prior to IUPUI, I earned my BA in Psychology from UC San Diego. My research interests include protective psychological processes that buffer against stress in cancer patients and their family caregivers. I am also interested in how mindfulness- and acceptance-based interventions affect cancer symptom management and how they might be implemented in a dyadic context. Outside of the lab, I like to run and am always searching for a new trail.

I am a fourth-year student in the Clinical Psychology program at IUPUI. I received my BA in Psychology from Koc University in Turkey and my MS in Psychology from the University of Sussex in the United Kingdom. Since 2016, I am working in the Behavioral Oncology Laboratory under the mentorship of Dr. Catherine Mosher. My research interests are in the relations between cancer patients and their family members, cancer patients' acceptance of their disease, and acceptance-based interventions for patient-caregiver dyads. Outside the lab, I enjoy watching movies and playing the piano.

Clinical Psychology Ph.D.
Program

I'm a second-year student in the Clinical Psychology PhD program at IUPUI. Prior to IUPUI, I earned my BS in Psychology from the University of Dayton. My research interests include identifying predictors of cancer patients' and family caregivers' symptoms and quality of life as well as the development and evaluation of mindfulness-based interventions to improve these outcomes in cancer care. Dr. Mosher's mentorship has given me the incredible opportunity to apply for and receive a T32 training fellowship in interdisciplinary cancer control. Outside of the lab, I enjoy exercising, eating all the food in sight, and spending quality time with family and friends.
