Research Interests

My work aims to understand how the brain and body interact to create the experience of pain, and why some people might be prone to develop pain while others are relatively resilient. I am especially interested  in the biological mechanisms that underlie cognitive and affective responses to pain and how this knowledge might help us treat pain.
