I have a Bachelor of Arts Hons in Psychology from McGill University and a Master of Science in School and Applied Child Psychology from the University of Calgary. Currently pursuing a Ph.D. in School and Applied Child Psychology at the University of Calgary. My research focuses on how to improve the mental health and well-being of children and adolescents with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorders (ADHD). I am particularly interested in understanding why a number of children with ADHD are at heightened risk for experiencing mental health challenges. Specifically, I investigate academic and social factors that contribute to mental health issues in children and youth with ADHD. I have a passion for researching and developing innovative interventions (e.g., summer camp) to support social development within this population.
