Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

My work is focused on novel interventional treatment approaches for treatment resistant unipolar and bipolar depression. We are currently enrolling patients with treatment refractory bipolar depression for a radiosurgical neuromodulation study. We are awaiting the start of enrollment for a DBS in unipolar depression study.
I am also working with children in Sub Saharan Africa. Primarily I am focused on methods to assess well-being, and long term outcomes for these vulnerable children.
