primary mission is to understand the brain basis of psychiatric disorders and
to promote translation of this knowledge into clinical practice. Towards this end, I employ multimodal
neuroimaging techniques to investigate the pathophysiology of psychiatric and
neurodevelopmental disorders such as schizophrenia, depression, bipolar
disorder, ADHD, autism, and dyslexia.
My goals are to discover biomarkers for improved diagnosis, early
detection (potentiating early intervention and possibly prevention),
prediction of therapeutic response (targeted towards precision medicine), and
development of novel therapeutic techniques (e.g., real-time fMRI
neurofeedback) with the hope of improving (or augmenting) currently available
treatments. A secondary goal of my
research is to develop functional imaging analysis tools to share with
clinicians and the neuroimaging community at large.
