Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Human Behavior (Research)

Overview

I am a pediatric neuropsychologist at Bradley Hospital and assistant professor in the division of child and adolescent psychiatry at the Alpert Medical School of Brown University. I am board-certified in clinical neuropsychology, with a subspecialty in pediatric clinical neuropsychology, from the American Board of Professional Psychology.

I completed my doctoral degree in clinical psychology at Antioch University New England, a pediatric neuropsychology internship at the Kennedy Krieger Institute and Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, and a pediatric neuropsychology fellowship at E. P. Bradley Hospital and Alpert Medical School of Brown University.

My research is focused on developing novel, brain-based treatments for the neurocognitive aspects of childhood neuropsychiatric disorders. To achieve this goal, we utilize brain imaging (e.g., MRI), brain activity recording (e.g., EEG), and non-invasive brain stimulation (e.g., TMS) to modulate the neural dynamics underlying neurocognitive deficits in children and adolescents.

My research is currently funded by the NIMH-K23 Award, Brain & Behavior Research Foundation-NARSAD, The Carol Peterson Foundation, and the COBRE Center for Neuromodulation.
