I obtained my Masters in Psychology with Magna cum Lauda at Ghent University (2008), where I also undertook my graduate training (2008-2012), funded by the Funds for Scientific Research in Flanders (FWO). Since my graduate training, my research has focused on understanding parent-child interactions in the context of child pain experiences.
After receiving my PhD I explored my horizons and started a post-doctoral fellowship at the Centre for Pediatric Pain Research (IWK Health Centre, Halifax, Canada), funded by the Louise and Alan Edwards Fellowship in Pediatric Pain Research (2012-14).
From 2014-2016 I was a Lecturer of Psychology in the School of Psychology at NUI, Galway, where I contributed to research and teaching of Health Psychology and continued my research on the bidirectional influences of paediatric pain between parents and preschoolers as part of the Centre for Pain Research.
Since July 2016, I am Lecturer of Psychology at the Faculty of Natural Science at the University of Stirling responsible for the 3rd year undergraduate Social Psychology module. I also teach and supervise students within the MSc Health Psychology.
