The MAD group start the year with two new postdocs:
I first became interested in research when I was working as physiotherapist in London, treating, and probably causing, quite a lot of pain. I decided to follow this interest to Australia, where I undertook my PhD in conjunction with King's College London. My PhD focussed on perceptual inference in relation to the experience of pain, specifically considering the purpose that pain serve, how it influences the perceptions we hold of our environment and the decisions we make. I will be working on evolutionary models of pain and its interaction with mental health.
