About Me

Dr. Fizur's clinical and research interests lie in health psychology, neuropsychology, and the integration of web and mobile technologies to help make advances in these areas.

Within the domain of health psychology he primarily focuses on the cognitive and behavioral correlates of individuals diagnosed with cancer. This includes cognitive assessment pre- and post-treatment, behavioral interventions to improve adherence, and other interventions to assist patients in managing the psychological sequelae of living with a chronic illness. To bolster these efforts he has undertaken significant training in neuropsychology for the purpose of conducting thorough assessments to better understand a patient’s baseline level of functioning as well as the cognitive impact of diseases and treatment.

To extend assessment and intervention outside of the clinic, he has both studied and created web-based, mobile-friendly applications through which patients can track symptoms, manage medications, and receive reminders of content discussed during face-to-face meetings.

As a member of the Society for Implementation Research Collaboration he strives to better understand and help overcome barriers to effective dissemination and implementation of evidenced based interventions in health-related settings.
