My areas of expertise encompass a broad range of topics and levels of analysis relevant to severe psychiatric disorders (i.e., schizophrenia, bipolar disorder) and developmental disorders (i.e., autism). As my educational background and publication record indicate, I have a background in basic neuroscience and extensive experience in a number of electrophysiological approaches in both humans and animals. In addition, I have training at the graduate and postdoctoral levels in areas critical for research with clinical populations, including clinical diagnosis/assessment and neuropsychological testing. My research has broadly endeavored to investigate the integrity of the cerebellum and related brain circuitry in human neuropychiatric disorders through the use of behavioral probes such as eyeblink conditioning. In particular, my interest has been in the timing and synchronization of neural responses and their relationship to cognitive and behavioral symptoms of severe psychiatric illnesses.
