BC Children's Hospital Research Institute is pleased to congratulate the recipients of the 2018 Outstanding Achievement Awards and the 2018 BCCHR Studentships and Fellowships.
I am a clinical psychologist interested in research that lies at intersection of psychology and medicine. For example, how can our understanding of positive psychology contribute to the maintenance of health and well-being in pediatric populations? How can research from neuropsychology assist us in understanding the cognitive, emotional, and behavioural sequelae of medical illness and interventions? I am also interested in program evaluation and using clinical research to inform and improve health care policy and procedures.
