About me/my research:

I am interested in the associations between pain, sleep and depression in youth with chronic illnesses. Currently, my research focus is on the sleep-wake disturbances, pain, and psychological health in adolescents with spina bifida. Recently, I received Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Award Service (NRSA) for Individual Predoctoral Fellows for my dissertation project entitled, “Sleep-wake disturbances and physical and psychological health in adolescents with spina bifida”
