Research Interests:

The goal of my research is to understand the pathophysiology of mood disorders in the context of medical co-morbidities and late life using novel magnetic resonance imaging techniques. Our group focuses on using structural and functional brain connectivity to study the brain as a network. Using these modalities, we have developed innovative ways of discovering brain changes associated with mood disorders that may lead to patient-specific targets for intervention and treatment.
