My current research interests are focused on understanding the relationships between spinal cord injuries and neuropathic pain. Using a technique known as Contact Heat Evoked Potential stimulation (CHEPs), I apply a heat stimulus to an area of the body such as the limbs, and analyze recordings of electrical signals reaching the brain, allowing diagnostics of the spinal cord sensory pathway. I am currently optimizing protocols to determine if CHEPs can be used to diagnose small fiber neuropathy.
