Dr. Ray’s research interests include strategies to improve nerve regeneration and the development of innovative technology targeting peripheral nerve/neuroprosthetic interfaces. The management of spinal cord injuries utilizing novel imaging modalities and surgical techniques to help predict functional recovery and provide patients with spinal cord injuries improved distal limb function.
Anna received her bachelors degree from the University of Illinois Springfield and her masters in occupational therapy from Washington University in St. Louis. Anna completed a clinical rotation in hand therapy at Washington University and began working there as an occupational therapist in 2013. She has received her board certification in hand therapy specialty (CHT) and her clinical practice has a strong focus in peripheral nerve injuries, brachial plexus injuries, upper extremity trauma and nerve compression disorders. Additionally, Anna is investigating functional outcomes following nerve transfers for hand function in persons with spinal cord injury with Wilson Z. Ray in the department of Neurosurgery.
Outside of her clinical practice, Anna spends her time doing yoga, biking, and traveling whenever possible. She has a strong interest in incorporating yoga principles and mindfulness techniques into treatment for persons suffering from nerve injuries and chronic pain.
