I am an applied social psychologist and my primary area of research interest involves how people adapt to chronic illness. My research has examined whether individuals with a chronic illness experience post traumatic growth, how they manage employment, and if they feel stigmatized. The courses I teach include Health Psychology that explores how biological, psychological, and behavioural factors influence physical health and illness.
