Research Interests

My research program focuses on improving behavioural health and psychological outcomes among individuals across the lifespan. I view digital health as an approach that can be used to assist with achieving this goal via increasing access to evidence-based interventions for youth and adults. As such, I use digital health to answer key research questions and to develop and test interventions targeting outcomes such as chronic pain, anxiety, depression, and health behaviours. 

Specific areas of interest include: 

  • Chronic pain in childhood cancer survivors
  • Pain in youth undergoing cancer treatment 
  • Fear of cancer recurrence; cancer-related worry 
  • Pain in youth and adults with sickle cell disease 
  • Health anxiety 
  • Internet-delivered cognitive behavioural therapy 
  • Wearable-based interventions
