Research Overview

My general research interests are in the area of characterizing the neurobiological mechanisms underlying addictive disorders and obesity and translating these findings into improved prevention and treatment programs. Current projects include interactions between risk alleles on cognitive function and associated structural brain patterns, connectivity, and functional activation in substance use/abuse, schizophrenia, bipolar, and obesity.
