Danielle approaches the topic of cancer survivorship from an interdisciplinary perspective, given her academic and professional background in the field and also her personal experience as a long-term cancer survivor. Her particular interests include the phenomenon of cancer survivorship as experienced by adolescents and young adults (AYA) around the world, and how meaning and self-concept develop following a cancer diagnosis.
In both professional and consumer advocacy roles, Danielle is involved with a variety of national and international organisations and projects. She is also an advisory committee member of CanSpeak Queensland, the peak consumer advocacy organisation representing Queenslanders whose lives have been affected by cancer.
Danielle recently completed PhD research exploring the cancer survivorship experiences of young adults in Australia, England and the United States.
