Description of Interests

I am an Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science, working as a clinical researcher and a licensed clinical psychologist. As a clinician in the Asher Center, I offer evidence-based psychotherapy for depression and anxiety, with expertise in behavioral activation and cognitive behavioral therapy. In my lab, we examine the neural and behavioral substrates of reinforcement learning in depression. We translate these results into experimental treatments to accelerate a person's rate of recovery. We use multiple methods (e.g., neuroimaging, computer tasks, biologic challenges) towards the goal of developing an effective behavioral treatment for depression.
