Professional Background

Over the course of my career, I have been fortunate to obtain a very broad perspective on pain research. I started by performing single-unit electrophysiological and imaging studies in animals, then moved on to perform imaging and psychophysical studies in mostly healthy adults, and have now entered a new phase in my career by extending my research into children with chronic pain. As my career has progressed, I have become more aware of the need to make research available to patients, providers, and payers in order to improve both practice and policy.
