Personal profile

Research Interests

The primary focus of my research is on investigating the bio-psycho-social determinants of interpersonal violence. I am particularly interested in applying the public health science model to the study and prevention of community violence. My clinical research investigates neurocognitive and functional outcomes in traumatic brain injury, neurodevelopmental disorders, and diseases affecting the central nervous system.

My primary interest is in clinical neuropsychology. I work with patients diagnosed with epilepsy, brain tumors, traumatic brain injury, and other conditions affecting cognitive functioning including cerebrovascular, metabolic, autoimmune, and genetic disorders. I am also interested in neuropsychology as it applies to the justice system, particularly independent neuropsychological evaluation of criminal and civil litigants for issues related to mitigation, fitness, and risk assessment.
