Personal profile


I obtained my PhD at the University of Otago and held postdoctoral positions at Columbia University, the University of Queensland and the University of Sydney. I am currently a Group Leader in Neuroscience in the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute and the Department of Physiology and a NHMRC Career Development Fellow.

Research interests

My research focuses on changes that happen within the pain processing pathways in the spinal cord following the development of chronic pain. Some of these changes are potential therapeutic targets and I am interested in finding new, more effective ways to treat chronic pain.
