Personal profile

Area of Expertise

My laboratory is interested in studying how people with mild brain trauma, mood problems, medical diseases, and/or addiction problems will react to treatments and how their responses to treatment might differ among others without such problems. We are also interested in studying the brain and biology of those with mild brain trauma, mood problems, medical diseases, and/or addiction problems as we look for clues to identify the people who might be more at-risk for developing Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease than others.
Active research includes longitudinal outcomes research, matched-control cross-sectional biomarker studies to predict risks for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, community-based program effectiveness, and treatment response research in the following populations: co-occurring disorders, addiction, veterans with mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) with and without posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), veteran spouses and their children, and at-risk grade school children with adverse childhood experiences.
