My research largely focuses on mechanisms underlying and maintaining pediatric chronic pain. Within this area, I have developed a research program on temporal associations between pain, sleep, affective processes and functional disability, and the role of family factors in pediatric chronic pain. My prospective research employs electronic health (e-health) tools and I am interested in developing and testing cognitive behavioral e-health interventions specifically targeting the sleep-pain association.
