My main interests are pain research and neuroscience in general, which I study using a variety of techniques e.g. functional neuroimaging, magnetic resonance spectroscopy and diffusion weighted imaging. Recently I have developed new techniques for acquiring functional imaging data from the spinal cord, which is a key relay point for integration and transmission of nociceptive signals from the peripheral nervous system, and the first point in the central nervous system (CNS) where these signals are processed.
