In the fields of pediatric psychology and behavioral medicine, I am interested in researching ways to promote healthy behavior in children and adolescents while simultaneously improving mental health. My goal is to utilize novel tools in health assessment to better understand health-related quality of life and how chronic conditions impact children and adolescents.
