Research Summary

I am a board certified psychiatrist and neuropsychiatrist with research work that has been translational in nature and focused on elucidating the underlying pathology of neuropsychiatric conditions such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, substance abuse and Parkinson's disease with an aim to find effective clinical treatments guided by molecular neuroimaging. Studies have included using PET imaging to investigate the role of receptors such as dopamine D3, serotonin 1B and 6, MGlur5 and kappa, neuroinflammation, and most recently, in-vivo synaptic density (SV2A) in clinical and nonclinical populations. Ongoing interests include imaging neuropsychiatric disorders and demographic, social and environmental factors influencing our brain.
