Short autobiography:

My research is mainly about pain and how it impacts function and functioning and the functional implications of postural deviations. I am also interested in the use of new technologies as a means to promote functioning.

Reason for joining: To network with other researchers interested in exploring the association between pain and body image and posture and body image.
Current research interest in relation to the COST Action: Relationship between chronic neck pain and body image, exploring whether changes in sensorial function might be associated with a distorted body image. Additionally, I am interested on whether there is an association between posture and body image and the functional consequences of this potential relationship.
