Personal profile


I am a Macquarie University Research Fellow and Clinical Psychologist at the eCentreClinic, within the School of Psychological Sciences.  My research program focusses on the development and evaluation of innovative, accessible psychological treatment options for adolescents and young adults with chronic health conditions, including chronic pain. 

I also hold an honorary research position with the Pain Research Unit at Sydney Children's Hospital and collaborate with the Departments of Pain and Palliative Care, and Gastroenterology. Prior to commencing at Macquarie, I completed a Postdoctoral Fellowship at Seattle Children’s Research Institute in Washington, USA, and have worked clinically in Australia in both public hospitals and private settings. 

Research interests

My research concerns the intersection of physical and mental health in adolescents and young adults with chronic health conditions, such as chronic pain, inflammatory bowel disease, endometriosis, diabetes and arthritis.  My research aims to better understand these complex problems, particularly from a psychological perspective, and develop psychological interventions to reduce disease burden and improve function and quality of life.  I am particularly interested in the development and delivery of remote-based psychological interventions which are accessible, acceptable, and cost-effective additions to the existing face-to-face treatment options.
