My career in neuroscience spans 17 years of work in diverse areas of the mental health field. There is a clear trajectory of my commitment to investigating mental health disorders seen from the various positions have that led to my current stage. My training has endowed me with a strong skill set for interrogating neurobiological systems. In addition, conducting research in numerous distinct settings has left me with a well-developed scientific philosophy, and a nuanced understanding of different mental health disorders, ranging from Alzheimer?s disease, to Depression, to Autism Spectrum Disorder, all of which are complex brain disorders with severe public health implications.
