    Research Interests

    Following my experience as head of a research unit in psycho-oncology and health psychology at Université Paris Descartes, I have been appointed at the departments of psychology and pediatrics at U of Montreal. My lab is at the Cancer Care Centre at CHU Sainte-Justine.

    My research encompasses core topics in psycho-oncology. We study psychosocial factors associated with the cancer trajectory in children, families and friends. I focus on 1) Evaluating and improving emotional distress and quality of life; 2) Understanding and improving clinical empathy in care.
