Overview

My research vision is to raise awareness across our society regarding the potential impacts of prenatal alcohol exposure and the whole-body condition of fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD). First to support the prevention of prenatal alcohol exposure through increased access to reproductive health care and reductions in alcohol use. Second, for those who are already affected, I want to increase the availability of assessment and diagnostic services and ensure that all children, young people, and their families can have access to the supports that they need.

Research Interests

  • Prevention of prenatal alcohol exposure, including fetal alcohol spectrum disorder

  • Assessment and diagnosis of fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD)

  • Interventions for children with FASD
    Developing and implementing effective interventions to improve outcomes for children with FASD and their families.
