About me/my research:

My primary interests include the role of parents and other caregivers in assessment and treatment of children's pain, social modeling in pediatric pain, children's facial expressions of pain, and sex differences in pediatric pain. I am currently examining the impact of a parent's behavioural reaction to a painful event on the child's own pain experience, and whether differences are present based on parent and child sex
