My current research focuses on the molecular profiling of murine DRG neurons in painful conditions.
I have a background in sensory physiology, having previously worked under Prof. Ian Meinertzhagen and Dr. Vic Rafuse at Dalhousie University (Halifax, CA). I completed my MSc at the Max Planck Institute for Experimental Medicine (Göttingen, DE) with Prof. Manuela Schmidt, and a DPhil at the University of Oxford with Prof. David Bennett and Dr. Giorgos Baskozos.
