Overview

As a Clinician-Scientist, I have a strong interest in conducting translational research that bridges our understanding on the neurobiology of psychiatric illnesses with the clinical applications of this knowledge. I am particularly interested in applying this strategy to severe psychiatric disorders such as refractory psychosis and treatment resistant depression. My clinical practice is actively focused in those most severely afflicted by such conditions, and my research interests are directed at finding novel therapeutic interventions within Non-Invasive Neurostimulation Therapies (NINETs) that can help mitigate the suffering of those with severe and refractory forms of psychosis and depression, including pediatric populations. I strongly believe that understanding NINETs’ mechanism(s) of action is a critical step towards translating this knowledge to clinical practice. More important, translating that knowledge to clinical practice will have a direct, immediate, and positive impact on the life’s of those who struggle and suffer the most devastating forms of mental illness and their families.
