Personal profile

Research Interests

I am a physiotherapist with a passion for persistent pain management. My research interests include psychologically-informed practice and suicide prevention, and novel opportunities to improve pain care and research translation through interprofessional collaboration. My PhD explores transdisciplinary and post-professional models of persisting pain care, the solutions they might offer to existing problems with access and quality, and the development of an evidence-informed framework for a post-professional role in pain management.
