Professional Background
I have been working in clinical pain research since the completion of my PhD in 2003. Prior to this I was a clinical physiotherapist for over 20 years. My research focus has been on the mechanisms underlying the development of chronic pain following musculoskeletal injury; developing predictive models and clinical algorithms for outcome after injury and developing effective interventions for musculoskeletal pain conditions.  I have published over 140 scientific papers and book chapters as well as three books in the areas of whiplash injury and musculoskeletal pain.  I am Chair of the Scientific Committee of the Australian Pain Society.
