Daniel is a Lecturer in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy and a pain scientist at the University of South Australia. His research focusses on leading-edge theories of body perception and how they might inform new approaches to chronic pain, often involving virtual reality and sensory training approaches.
Daniel and Lorimer Moseley are co-authors of the new book—Pain and The Nature of Perception: A New Way to Look at Pain—which uses stunning visual illusions to highlight nuances in the way that perception works, to promote a broader understanding and approach to the treatment of pain.
Daniel holds a Master of Musculoskeletal and Sports Physiotherapy, a chronic-pain focussed PhD, and serves on the education committees for the Australian Pain Society and Pain Revolution. He is also part of the OneThing pain science podcast team.
