Biography
My academic career has included conducting quantitative and qualitative research in multidisciplinary research groups. In the Academic year 2011-2012, I joined the faculty of Department of Family Health Care Nursing in University of California San Francisco for my post-doctoral research. In addition to the academic career, I have ten-year working experience as a NICU nurse. My research interests include family-centered care, pain and sleep in neonates, and the use of IT tools in implementation research. 


Research
I am leading the Health in Early Life and Parenthood (HELP) research group which aims to promote health and welfare in the early stages of life. In addition, I serve as the Director for Separation and Closeness Experiences in Neonatal Environment (SCENE) research group which aims to improve parents' and infants' experiences and outcomes of neonatal care.
