About me/my research:

My interests include examining adult and child interactions surrounding painful procedures as well as individual and social factors that influence the quality of life in children and adolescents with chronic pain. Specifically, my recent work examined social support and stigma in adolescents with sickle cell disease. Further interests include assessing the effectiveness of mind-body and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy-based interventions in pediatric chronic pain populations.
