Ana Carvalho, Associate

Ana obtained her Masters in Medical Sciences (Rehab) in 2012. Her research was focused on the science of ergonomics in the workplace. This topic was associated with biopsychosocial factors that go hand in hand during the adjustment to pain process. Her research explained that due to these adjustments, the performance of roles at home and work is affected. This is because of the changing interactions and relationship between the occupations, environment, and person.
