I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of British Columbia and BC Children’s Hospital in Vancouver. Specifically, I am affiliated with a Reproductive Mental Health Clinic and the Center for Mindfulness. I have a background and have been involved in projects in the fields of mental health, neuropsychopharmacology, e-mental health and application of technology in health, addiction, mindfulness and resilience. My prior training includes teacher training in MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction), and PhD in e-mental health. My research interests are: mental well-being, mental health care and prevention; awareness, compassion, mindfulness and other ways to support human flourishing; interpersonal dynamics of mindfulness. Currently, my biggest passion are research projects exploring mindfulness and contemplative practices offered to perinatal families. And examining ways that can lead to flourishing relationships, healthier parent-infant interactions, attachment, as well as support healthy early development of the child.
