Narrative Bio

I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist and clinical research scientist in the field of developmental psychopathology and liability to schizophrenia. My areas of expertise include: 1) neuropsychological evaluation, 2) severe mental illness, 3) genetic and environmental effects on mental illness, 4) psychotherapy, and 5) quantitative statistics and research methodology.

In the Department of Neurology, I provide neuropsychological evaluation and consultation services to the Neurology Clinics to assist with diagnosis and treatment of individuals with neurological and psychiatric illness. Additonal areas of clinical focus include cognitive-behavioral and interpersonal psychotherapy, particularly treatment of depressive and bipolar mood disorders, psychological assessment, and clinical supervision.

My research is in identification of risk and protective factors for development of severe mental illness and application of this information to advance early detection and intervention in young people at risk for schizophrenia. I am especially interested in social functioning and the relation between stress exposure, social functioning, and risk/exacerbation of schizophrenia and related disorders.
