Personal profile

Research interests

My research focus on the musculoskeletal disorders, especially low back pain through epidemiology, basic science, clinical and health service-orientated research.   I am keen to evaluate the impact of musculoskeletal disorders and low back pain in low-income, developing countries and how it influence the living standards of the people, health care services and policies in the region.  Through the principles of co-production and patient-public engagement, I work with local researchers in the region to understand and co-produce support services, capacity building, and develop sustainable partnerships for management of musculoskeletal disorders.  I take a multidisciplinary approach developing research, innovation and scientific knowledge on health promotion, prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal conditions within the cultural, psychological and social aspects of the local regional context.
