The biomedical science degree is the foundation on which I’m working to build a multidisciplinary understanding of the nervous system, with a strong focus on mental health, and clinical research.
The aim of my PhD research is to further the understanding of peripheral pain mechanisms.
Sensory & psychophysiological testing alongside Microneurography, will be used to investigate the electrophysiological properties of afferent nerve fibres (in humans), in both normal, and neuropathic pain models/ states.
I’m a strong advocate for scientific communication, and public engagement with research. I’m proud to be a part of SomAffect, and a member of the growing scientific community within LJMU and the Research Centre for Brain & Behaviour. I’m also grateful to the Pain Relief Foundation for supporting and encouraging research into chronic pain.
