Corey Kronman, M.S.

Research Assistant
Corey graduated from Boston University with a Bachelors of Science in Biomedical Engineering in 2013, followed by a Masters of Science in Medical Science in 2015. He works closely with Dr. Simons, exploring pain-related fear learning in children, adolescents, and young adults. Corey's research interests include using neuroimaging techniques to further understand pediatric chronic pain, the development of multimodal therapy techniques for children experiencing chronic pain, and the effects of aerobic exercise on cognitive functioning. In the future, Corey hopes to pursue a combined medical and doctoral degree in cognitive neuroscience before entering the medical field of neurosurgery.
