Areas of Research

Pediatric Pain
Dr. Noel's research expertise is in the area of children's anxiety and pain memories as cognitive-affective mechanisms underlying trajectories of pediatric pain. The overarching aim of her research is to understand and harness the influence of cognitive-behavioral factors, like pain memories, on children’s pain trajectories using developmental frameworks. Her interests cover the areas of acute (e.g., painful medical procedures, experimental pain in the lab) and chronic (i.e., pain lasting for at least 3 months) pain in a variety of clinical and healthy populations (e.g., vaccination, venipunctures, surgery, chronic pain, emergency care). Her clinical interests include child clinical and pediatric psychology populations, with particular interest in the intersection between children's physical and mental health.
