Noel’s research interests include the long-term impact of pediatric pain and, specifically, the cognitive-affective factors involved in the development of children’s memories for pain and pain trajectories over time. Her successfully defended dissertation research, supported by a Society of Pediatric Psychology Marion and Donald Routh Student Research Grant, was published in the Journal of Pediatric Psychology, PAIN and Pain Management. She has disseminated her research in 17 articles published in peer-reviewed journals as well as through national and international conferences, media interviews, community lectures and science camps for children.
