Background


I have a long standing background in the chronic pain field especially osteoarthritis pain (OA). This was as a result of my PhD which investigated structural and pain modifications in models of osteoarthritis pain within the Arthritis Research UK (ARUK) Pain Centre at the University of Nottingham. Prior to joining Newcastle University as a research associate, I took up a 1 year position as a research associate within the ARUK Pain Centre group and continued my research in OA pain.
