Dr Negin Hesam-Shariati is a postdoctoral fellow at the School of Psychology, the University of New South Wales (UNSW) and an affiliated scientist in the Centre for Pain IMPACT at Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA).

Negin completed both a BSc and MSc in biomedical engineering. Her postgraduate research was focused on designing functional electrical stimulation control systems to restore upper-limb motor function for people with spinal cord injury (SCI). She completed her doctoral degree at UNSW and NeuRA in 2018. During her PhD, she investigated the neurophysiological changes underpinning the therapy-induced improvements of motor function in chronic stroke.

Currently, she leads the Chronic Pain Neurotherapy program at the UNSW NeuroRecovery Research Hub, directed by Prof Sylvia Gustin. The focus of this program is on developing and testing a brain-computer interface neurofeedback intervention for people with chronic neuropathic pain.
