In 2016 he wrote ‘Embodied: the psychology of physical sensations’ which was a deep-dive investigation of the neuroscience of the ten neglected physical senses. In 2018 he edited ‘European Pain Management’ an analysis of the investments, challenges and opportunities in 37 European Countries, and in 2021 with Elaine Wainwright he edited ‘Work and Pain’ an analysis of the growing field of pain in the workplace, broadly understood.
