Dr Gallina graduated in Physiotherapy in 2009. He started his research career working as a research coordinator for the Laboratory for Engineering of the Neuromuscular System in Torino. In these years, he learnt how to use high-density electromyography and became interested in neuromuscular control, while completing a MSc in Exercise, Testing and Research in Rehabilitation Medicine. In 2013 he moved to Vancouver, Canada, to pursue his PhD in Rehabilitation Sciences on the effects of clinical and experimental knee pain on the regional activation within the vasti muscles. He further developed his skills in electrophysiology and techniques for stimulation of sensory afferents in his postdoc in Kinesiology at the University of British Columbia. In May 2019 Dr Gallina started a position as a Lecturer in the School of Sports, Exercise and Rehabilitation Sciences, within the Centre of Precision Rehabilitation for Spinal Pain.
