“It feels really great to be recognized for my hard work. This makes me want to strive even harder. Receiving this award makes me think that, once I start my career, I also want to give back to help students succeed.”

Our lab is interested in discovering the the relationship between brain activity and the various dimensions that comprise the pain experience.
We perform brain imaging research with humans and with rodent models of chronic pain. Our overall goal is to identify brain regions and circuits that change with chronic pain and determine how interventions restore normal brain function.
