I am a postdoctoral fellow with Dr. Christine Chambers at IWK Health, Halifax, Nova Scotia. My research focuses on the perinatal mental health of birthing persons and their partners. I also focus on the use of mHealth technology to improve maternal and newborn outcomes. I developed a text message program for mothers in Nova Scotia called Essential Coaching for Every Mother. For my postdoctoral fellowship, I am expanding this intervention to fathers and partners to develop Essential Coaching for Every Partner.
My research covers topics includes mHealth interventions the postpartum period, postpartum transitions, global health, and eHealth and social media. For highlights of my research, see my research page.
