My areas of interest are neurophysiology and chronic pain. I have a background studying electrophysiology of peripheral nerves in both human and rodent subjects. In the basic science setting, I worked on the development of novel local anesthetics as well as new pain protocols. More recently, I have carried out several VA based protocols with botulinum toxins and its beneficial effects. My team and I are working on new approaches to analyzing chronic pain including thermography and surface electrodes.
