My primary academic interests lie in the broad area of Behavioral Medicine and particularly in the area of clinical pain research. I conduct clinical trials examining the effects of psychological and pharmacological treatments of pain and depression in chronic illnesses. I am also interested in identifying risk factors for developing chronic pain.
