Research Statement

The research interests of my group focus on neural and cognitive changes in mental disorders (addiction and obsessive compulsive disorder). In particular, we are interested in neural and behavioral correlates of performance monitoring, learning and decision-making with noninvasive imaging techniques such as EEG and fMRI. Our long-term goal is to identify transdiagnostic biomarkers or endophenotypes that predict the onset or course of disorders.
