About me/my research:

Hannah is currently doing her Master of Arts under the supervision of Dr. Rebecca Pillai Riddell in the OUCH Lab at York University. Her current research focus is on infant pain regulation and caregiver sensitivity during immunization, and their connection to early childhood mental health. Hannah's Master’s thesis aims to develop and establish the psychometric properties of a mental health screening tool to be incorporated into primary care immunization appointments.
