Personal profile

Research Interests

The Warren Wright Adolescent Center (WWAC) is dedicated to better understanding cognition in health and psychiatric illness in adolescents and young adults. Our goal is to map the range of healthy development to better understand psychiatric disturbance in adolescents during crucial development years (13 to 22 years of age). Our work looks to establish a baseline of healthy adolescents. From there, we create and compare biomarkers to individuals who are experiencing life altering illnesses that cause disruption in their everyday life.
