About me

Hello! I'm Sammy Millard (she/her/hers), a PhD candidate at Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA), University of New South Wales (UNSW). I study how we can predict chronic pain development using the brain.

In my free time I enjoy rock climbing, playing classical guitar, and exploring the Australian wilderness.
