My interests lie at the intersection of public health, clinical medicine, and behavioural sciences, all in service of improving child and youth health. My work employs techniques from health services research, behavioural economics, epidemiology, experimental psychology, and health economics in an effort to improve the health and healthcare of children.

The goal of my research is to better understand how children and their parents make decisions about their health, and to use these results to improve the prevention and management of pediatric chronic disease. In particular, I aim to improve the treatment of asthma by identifying the behavioural and cognitive factors that make adherence to treatment more difficult, in order to address these characteristics to improve the care and quality of life of asthmatic children. 

I am leading the development of a screening and intervention tool for lifestyle behaviours in pediatrics. This tool, founded in principles of behavioural scieneces, will serve to improve the prevention of chronic diseases.

I prioritize communication with the public as an integral part of my work in public health, and I endeavour to properly communicate the facts, uncertainty, and the balance of risks and benefits in my communication with families and with the media, so that everyone can make informed decisions about their health and that of their children.
