I’m a PhD candidate working on understanding neural coding of somatosensory information in the peripheral nervous system. I use electrophysiology, multiphoton fluorescence microscopy, and computational modeling to address my research questions. My goal is to develop a comprehensive understanding of somatosensory neural coding to explore the cause of and persistence of neuropathic pain, with the aim of guiding treatment strategies for better clinical outcomes.
