Research Interests

My research interests are focused on children and families.

 

I have published research using both qualitative and quantitative methodologies.

  

My research includes : development and validation of quality of life measures children, teens, and families,

 

bio-psycho-social interactions and developmental trajectories, the development and application

 

of qualitative and quantitative research methodologies, psychometrics,

 

mathematical models, psycho-neuro-immunology, design and validation of psycho-educational interventions to address anxiety avoidance and/or risk and to enhance or give rise to constructive coping, risk assessment, and collaborative interdisciplinary research.
