Dr Daniela Ghio is a Research Fellow within the School of Primary Care, Population Sciences and Medical Education, Faculty of Medicine at the University of Southampton.

Daniela completed a PhD in Health Psychology at the University of Manchester. Her thesis titled Illness perceptions in adolescents with juvenile arthritis: applying the common sense self-regulatory model, aimed to evaluate the applicability of a well-established health theory to studying and measuring pain beliefs in adolescents. During this time, she was also involved with an NIHR project in developing an application, to monitor/assess pain experiences of children and adolescents with JIA. The goal of this tool is to provide a measurement of pain that includes the multidimensional characteristics of pain.

Her research interests lie in paediatric psychology, health psychology, behavioural medicine and behavioural changes, epidemiology, mixed methodology, self-management.
