    Instructor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences

    Bio My research aims to understand the central mechanisms of chronic pain disorders such as migraine and facial pain by combining structural and functional MRI methods, sensory testing, and subjective measures of pain perception and affect. I am also interested in understanding how effective treatment strategies impact brain measures relative to changes in clinical symptoms. Other ongoing collaborative projects focus on clinical trials and translational projects to assess novel non-invasive neuromodulation approaches for the treatment of chronic pain and depression, central mechanisms of pain in individuals with chronic Lyme disease, and individual differences in hypnotizability.

    Teaching roles include Co-Director for the Neuroscience, Behavior, and Cognition (NBC) Scholarly Concentration, part of a required structured program of study in the medical student curriculum, and Co-Instructor for ANES 215, a required course in the Department of Anesthesia for medical students enrolled in the NBC Scholarly Concentration.
