Overview

  • I am a first-year PhD student funded by the Pain Relief Foundation in the Division of Musculoskeletal and Dermatological Sciences, Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health, University of Manchester.
  • My project aims to explore and characterise chronic pain experiences in children and young people, particularly the differences between those with an inflammatory pathology and those with a non-inflammatory condition.

Biography

I successfully obtained my First Class BSc (Hons) degree in Psychology at the University of Liverpool in 2019 and in 2020 I was awarded a Distinction for my MSc degree in Neuroimaging for Clinical and Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Manchester. I began my PhD in Health Psychology at the University of Manchester in October 2020. My PhD project aims to explore and characterise the complexities of chronic pain experiences in children and young people, particularly the differences between those with inflammatory pathologies and those with non-inflammatory pathologies. Longitudinal self-report data will be collected from patients using a mobile health pain assessment tool, called My Pain Tracker. This will allow for paediatric patient's pain experiences to be closely monitored. It is hoped that from this we can determine pain phenotypes which may improve clinical assessment and management of paediatric pain.
