About me/my research:

My research focus is the investigation of anxiety mechanisms and cognitive interventions in paediatric chronic pain. Specifically, I am conducting research to examine the role of anxiety processes and cognitive biases in the development, maintenance, and treatment of paediatric chronic pain. I am also developing and trialing a multi-session, computerized bias modification training intervention for paediatric pain patients. My research is funded by an Action Medical Research Trainee Fellowship.
