Canada Research Chair in Behavioural Health (Tier I)
My research focuses primarily on the psychological determinants of pain experience and pain expression. Separate lines of research address questions of interest from basic, clinical and applied perspectives. At the basic process level, my research is currently focusing on the nature of behavioural systems involved in the communication of pain. At the clinical level, I have recently launched two longitudinal studies examining psychological predictors of problematic medical outcomes.
