I am a physician-scientist and a child psychiatrist who work primarily with children who have attention and executive function deficits and/or neurogenetic conditions (such as Noonan syndrome, Turner syndrome, 22q11.2 deletion syndrome). I gained my training as a child psychiatrist at the Beer Yaakov Mental Health Center, affiliated with Tel Aviv University in Israel. At Stanford, I have completed three years as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Center for Interdisciplinary Brain Sciences Research at the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University.
I am currently an Instructor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and the Division of Interdisciplinary Brain Sciences (DIBS) at Stanford University. In this capacity, I am focused on utilizing my clinical skills as a child psychiatrist together with my research skills as neuroscience researcher with expertise in multimodal imaging methods, to develop a research program focused on pediatric clinical neuroscience with an emphasis on neurogenetic and neurodevelopmental syndromes.
