I am a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in the Discipline of Paediatrics, School of Clinical Medicine, UNSW Medicine & Health. I have a PhD in Medicine (Paediatrics, UNSW Sydney), a Masters of Qualitative Health Research (University of Sydney), and a combined Bachelor Science (Psychology) and Arts (Sociology, University of Sydney). My research interests focus on understanding the physical and psychosocial impact of being diagnosed with a serious or chronic illness in childhood (such as cancer), and developing evidence-based resources and interventions to alleviate their potentially lifelong burden on the patient and their families.
