I am an Associate Professor with the Faculty of Dental Medicine and Oral Health Sciences at McGill University. I am the Director of the Network for Canadian Oral Health Research (NCOHR). I was the Director of the Registry for NIH/NIDCR's Temporomandibular Joint Implant Registry and Repository from 2006 to 2011, President of the Neurosciences group of the International Association for Dental Research from 2007 to 2009, Councillor-at-Large position, Canadian Association for Dental Research (CADR) from 2012 to 2016 and current Chair of Orofacial Pain Working Group of the NCOHR. My formation includes a DDS in Brazil, an MSc in Neurologic Science, and a Ph.D. in Public Health with an orientation in Epidemiology from the Université de Montréal, followed by post-doctoral training in the Randomized Clinical Trials Unit from the Department of Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Occupational Health, McGill University.

Research Interests

My research interest is focused on the following areas: pain epidemiology, biomarkers, studies assessing the risk factors associated with the transition from acute to chronic pain and persistence of pain, RCTs assessing the effectiveness of pain management, and studies investigating the association between opioids, pneumonia and cancer risks. Much of my research is international, with collaborative projects in Canada, the USA, Brazil, the United Kingdom, France, Netherland, India, and Japan.
