Position

Senior Lecturer
College of Medicine and Public Health

Biography

Christine's current research investigates the distribution and function of peripheral nociceptive neurons. She completed her PhD in the Discipline of Anatomy and Pathology at the University of Adelaide in 2011, investigating brain inflammation and intracranial pressure following subarachnoid haemorrhage. She gained her Bachelor of Applied Science (Physiotherapy) and Master of Physiotherapy (Musculoskeletal) at the University of South Australia.
