Abby Tabor BiMAbby has a very posh English accent, and clearly doesn’t like granola bars.  She is working as a Research Assistant with the UniSA BiM team – getting to grips with what research life entails.

What brought Abby out to Oz? Having done a degree at Kings College London, Mick Thacker’s pain science lectures inspired Abby to delve into what lay behind the clinical experience.  While working as a clinician she  attended an Explain Pain lecture in London which cemented this quest for knowledge – ‘what will make me better, how do I put the research into practice’.

One of the projects Abby is currently working on is looking at whether inflicting acute pain alters perception of distance, the other is looking at the effect of alcohol on sensory training (Abby reckons she won’t struggle to get volunteers for that study!)
