My clinical interests include assessing and treating mood and behavioral disorders in children, adolescents, and youth. My current area of research is much more specific, and involves exploring behavioral and mood components in children and adolescents with sickle cell disease and cancer. Specifically, I am investigating interventions to decrease unwanted side effects in sickle cell disease. I am also investigating changes in mood-related cytokines in children with cancer. Finally, my lab and I are working on ways to improve behavioral adherence to medical regimen in children and adolescents with sickle cell disease and cancer.
