University of Sydney
I began my university career in 2008 when I commenced a double degree in Science (Major in Psychology) and Arts at the University of Sydney. During my third year of this four year degree, I became the research assistant for the Neural Imaging Laboratory, focusing on pain imaging and the study of chronic pain. It was then that I realised my passion for pain research and neural imaging. In 2014, I completed an Honours degree in the Neural Imaging Laboratory combining psychological themes with neuroscience and imaging. I received a first-class award for my thesis and went on to publish my findings at the journal of Cognitive, Affective and Behavioural Neuroscience. Following the completion of my Honours, I was reinstated as the research assistant in the Neural Imaging Laboratory where I began my research into migraines. After a year, I began my PhD in 2015 exploring the neural mechanisms underlying migraines. In May 2019 I received my PhD and in September 2019 commenced my Postdoctoral Associate position at the Brain and Mind Centre focusing on migraines and other chronic orofacial pain conditions.
