Interests: My dissertation is entitled "Towards an Understanding of College Women’s Decision-making regarding the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) Vaccine" and three sets of research questions address the roles of knowledge, barriers & opportunity, and affect in college women’s HPV vaccine uptake decision-making. Data came from UH Manoa’s female students during Fall of 2010, which were collected via a secured anonymous self-administered online survey. This research study was formulated upon a framework that integrates health communication theories and information behavior theory, encompassing multiple fields of science such as social, behavioral, information and public health sciences.
