Brandon Aylward, PhD
Dr. Aylward received his doctoral degree in clinical child psychology with a minor in quantitative psychology from the University of Kansas. He completed his predoctoral residency program and two fellowships at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. His research interests encompass a broad range of health-related issues for children and adolescents within the context of pediatric psychology. To this end, his work has focused on three main areas: (1) predictors and correlates of children’s psychosocial, developmental, and physical functioning; (2) trends and correlates of adherence and self-management behaviors; and 3) use of advanced statistical methodology and digital health technology to examine predictors and outcomes for chronic health issues. Dr. Aylward has received a Pediatric Innovation seed grant and is currently developing a mobile platform to assist caregivers of infants with CHD with daily feeding and provide a way for caregivers to communicate with the medical team.
