Personal profile

Public Profile

Since completing her PhD, Carolyn has been a National Health and Medical Research Council of Australia (NHMRC) Early Career Fellow at the University of Adelaide where she is using non-invasive brain stimulation techniques to investigate neuroplastic changes in the brain in people with persistent pain. The focus of her research is on understanding the mechanisms that will translate into novel clinical applications. In a career spanning 30 years, Carolyn has worked on under- and postgraduate Physiotherapy programs as a musculoskeletal clinical tutor and pain sciences lecturer at the University of South Australia, run her own physiotherapy practice (18 years), and given over 20 public and professional presentations. Carolyn has won several prizes for communication including best rapid communication at the Australian Pain Society Annual Conference (2014). Carolyn has co-authored 15 publications and one book chapter.  Since 2017 she has served on local and international committees for the peak pain bodies (Pain Group (SA) and the International Association for the Study of Pain) and been a mentor to local and interstate health practitioners who are building capacity to effectively manage persistent pain in their communities. In particular, Carolyn has a deep interest in building capacity to effectively manage persistent paediatric pain in South Australia.
