I am excited and privileged to work as a research fellow at the Wolfe-Harris Center for Clinical Studies. I am interested in better understanding of the mechanisms and effectiveness of various non-pharmacological treatments for musculoskeletal conditions, especially headache. I am also interested in exploring the role of non-specific effects in the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions.
I really enjoy exploring methodological questions relating to the performance of systematic reviews and clinical trials. I’ve been lucky to work with such an experienced team of mentors on a wide range of projects including systematic reviews, clinical trials and teaching evidence informed practice.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife Tina and our three children. We enjoy hiking, swimming, baseball, hockey, hopscotch, and staring at the occasional cloud.
