About me/my research:

As a postdoctoral fellow at the IWK Centre for Research in Family Health, I am involved in several projects including: (1) an international collaboration with Finland regarding the Strongest Families intervention program for preschoolers with oppositional behaviour; and (2) a project involving the development and evaluation of the usability, feasibility and potential effects of a Smartphone-based self-management intervention for adolescents and young adults with chronic headaches. I have also submitted a CIHR mentoring program grant application for which I will be the primary investigator on a randomized controlled trial of the web-based Strongest Families program for early disruptive behaviour.
