Diane Reckziegel, PhD is a postdoctoral fellow at Northwestern University (USA), working at Feinberg School of Medicine and being mentored by Vania Apkarian and Thomas Schnitzer. She earned her PhD and MSc at the University of Nottingham (UK) and before that graduated from Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (Brazil) with a bachelor’s degree in Mathematical Physics.
Dr. Reckziegel is interested in alleviating chronic pain, and achieving a deeper mechanistic and theoretical understanding of brain function.
Her research involves chronic pain, computational neuroscience, machine learning, clinical trials, pain modulation, and pain chronification.
