Biographical details

Clinical experience in the field of pain management for over 25 years with positions at Royal Prince Alfred and Royal North Shore Hospitals and completed a PhD in pain physiology at the University of Sydney. As well as an academic appointment at the University of Sydney, currently Director of the Pain Management Service at Greenwich Hospital, a university teaching hospital.

Research interests

Research interests include the mechanisms, management and factors contributing to pain with a special interest in pain following spinal cord injury, brain imaging of pain and existential issues and pain.

Teaching areas

Lectures on pain to graduate students in medicine and dentistry and contributes to the University of Sydney postgraduate degree program in pain management.
