Research Interests

Broadly speaking, I am interested in the use of Diffusion Weighted imaging tools to investigate neural circuitry associated with emotional and cognitive vulnerabilities in those with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Anxiety (among other conditions). I am particularly interested in the neural circuitry connecting the limbic system with the prefrontal cortex and how abnormalities of these connections may serve as an intermediate phenotype between the experience of stress and impaired arousal indicative of those displaying anxiety disorders. I am also interested in markers of risk and resilience to the development of anxiety disorders including social functioning and how differences in social functioning contribute to the etiology of anxiety disorders and diffusion-based intermediate phenotypes.
