Personal profile

Research interests

My career goal is to identify brain mechanisms involved in the transition from acute to chronic Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD) pain. This will support the development of improved prognostic markers and individualized treatment strategies, leading to reduction of health care costs and improvement of patients’ quality of life.

In order to achieve those goals, I use psychophysics and neuroimaging methods to measure somatosensory function and its related brain mechanisms in patients suffering from orofacial pain (OFP), with a focus on chronic TMD pain.
