Joel Fundaun

DPhil Student


I completed my Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Regis University in 2017 where I received the Excellence in Research Award and was inducted into the Alpha Sigma Nu Honor Society. I then completed my orthopaedic physical therapy residency at Northwestern University in 2018 assisting with a project evaluating cervical spine muscle morphology after whiplash injuries. Before moving to Oxford, I worked as a physiotherapist in the US. 

I am currently working towards a DPhil in Clinical Neurosciences under the supervision of A/Prof Annina Schmid. The focus of my research is on identifying nerve pathology in patients after whiplash injury.
