Eva Sierra-Silvestre

Postdoctoral Researcher

I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Neuromusculoskeletal Health and Science Lab supervised by A/Prof Annina Schmid. I have received a dual Ph.D. from Griffith University and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (2022). Previously, I worked as a clinical physiotherapist and lecturer.

My research interest focuses on understanding the mechanisms behind neuropathies and pain to improve clinical outcomes.

In my current project, I expect to contribute to the understanding of the mechanisms of action of neurodynamic exercises, a physical therapy treatment. I will use patients with carpal tunnel syndrome as a model of a focal peripheral injury. Our results will inform how to target neurodynamic exercises to specific patient populations.
