Abby's core research focus is on the description of the experience of pain from an embodied perspective. She is interested in applying Bayesian models of perception to bodily experiences in the presence of inferred threat. Given the inherent uncertainty associated with the information sought from the body and the external world, her research attempts to uncover the mechanisms underlying the need for protective behaviours, such as pain. Using models of restricted action, such as in arm fracture or in amputation, Abby investigates the intricate relationship between perception and action and the emergent experiences of the body. She works closely with researchers across disciplines as well as industrial partners in an attempt to answer key questions in line with why some experiences persist beyond the time that is often deemed adaptive.
