About me

  • I received my PhD degree in 2021 under the supervision of Professor Eva Kosek in the Department of Clinical Neuroscience at Karolinska Institutet.

    I am currently a postdoctoral researcher in the Pain and Neuroinflammation Imaging Laboratory at A. A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, Harvard Medical School.


  • My work has altogether focused on advancing our understanding of neural mechanisms of pain processing and inflammation in patients with chronic pain. Through the use of state-of-the art multimodal neuroimaging techniques such as Positron Emission Tomography (PET), functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) and 7T magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS), I aim to assess brain mechanisms in human chronic pain from multiple perspectives, in a manner that cannot be achieved through a single modality alone.
