I am a pain researcher and electrophysiologist. In 2022 I was awarded the Prof Anthony Mellows Medal & Fellowship. Using a combination of in vivo electrophysiology, optogenetics/chemogenetics, behaviour and fMRI, I aim to identify the circuit basis for chronic pain and co-morbid mood disorders.

DEFINING THE NEUROBIOLOGY OF CHRONIC PAIN AND ITS CO-MORBIDITIES

Prof Anthony Mellows/King's Prize Fellowship (2022-2024), £150K

Utilising in vivo electrophysiology, pharmacology and optogenetics to identify the neural basis of a sensory biomarker for pain modulation and top-down circuits that may link pain modulation and co-morbid mood disorders
