My primary research interest is focused on the involvement of psychological factors (stress, emotions) and the autonomic nervous system in pain perception and chronic pain syndromes. My current research project looks at the role of arterial baroreflexes in postoperative acute and chronic pain, opioid consumption, and inflammation.
