My research is focused on examining factors related to infant pain and pain-related distress through data obtained from a longitudinal cohort (OUCH Cohort) following caregiver-infant dyads during routine immunizations over the first year of life. Specifically, I am interested in how caregiver culture predicts caregiver behaviours and infant pain behaviours during infants' routine immunizations at 12 months of age. Additionally, I am interested in the relationship between infant and preschool pain regulation, measured during routine immunization procedures, and preschool attachment at 4 to 5 years of age.
