Special interests

I became interested in biomechanics and human physiology because of my strong background in sports. My physiotherapy education served as a basis for my specialisation. I am still interested in issues at the margins of medicine, human performance capacity, rehabilitation, movement and pain, the perception of illness and psychological issues. Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation is the specialty that provides the best opportunities to address these areas. I am also interested in pain management and symptom control.
