I am a psychiatric neuroimager. I am interestested in prefrontal regulation of attention and reward-seeking, especially in ADHD and substance use disorders. Many of my recent studies have used acute pharmacological challenge during fMRI scanning to probe specific neurocircuits. I have recently become interested in using machine learning methods to uncover the neural signatures of drug effects, disease states, and predictors of treatment response.
