Since arriving in 2013, I have been working towards my PhD in Clinical Psychology. Currently, my research is focused on exploring the impact of chronic pain on new romantic relationships (i.e., dating).  I am also interested in research exploring the connection between disability/illness and shame specifically, as well as how persons with disability/illness use technology to seek information and support and the impact of these strategies on overall health.
