Projects per year
I am a Research Fellow and Clinical Psychologist within the Department of Psychological Sciences. I hold a Macquarie University Research Fellowship (MQRF; 2019-2024) and am working with the eCentreClinic to develop an evidence-based Internet-delivered psychological intervention for adolescents with chronic pain.
In addition to my work with the eCentreClinic, I 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.
My current research program 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 and arthritis. My research aims to better understand these complex problems, particularly from a psychological perspective, and develop psychological interventions to reduce the 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.
