Personal profile

Current Research Interests

  • Neuroimaging studies of schizophrenia and related disorders, especially to identify genetic effects and for early detection
  • Developing novel interventions for schizophrenia and those at high risk
  • Building integrated biopsychosocial models of psychiatric disorders
  • Dispelling myths and promoting truths about psychiatric disorders

My research in a nutshell

My overarching goal is to develop research tools to provide objective diagnoses and improve the management of major psychiatric disorder.

I am particularly interested in clinical applications of brain imaging in schizophrenia and other psychoses, and in the development of novel treatments that might enhance outcomes in established schizophrenia and possibly even prevent psychosis in high risk populations.

My own research has primarily involved using structural and functional brain imaging to distinguish patients with schizophrenia from their relatives, and from other patients with major psychiatric disorders such as bipolar disorder and autism.
