Research and Teaching Interests:

I study mechanisms relating cognitive, emotional, and physiological aspects of normal human behavior and psychopathology, using the methods of cognitive, affective, social, and clinical psychophysiology including cognitive and affective neuroscience. Interests include executive function, emotional dysregulation, and sensory processes. I co-direct the UCLA Laboratory of Clinical and Affective Psychophysiology with Prof. Cindy Yee-Bradbury. In collaboration with Profs. Yee-Bradbury, Keith Nuechterlein, Katie Karlsgodt, and Naomi Eisenberger at UCLA, studies evaluate brain connectivity and exercise and stress dynamics in schizophrenia using MRI, EEG, EKG, and cortisol methods. In collaboration with Prof. Brigitte Rockstroh and Dr. Tzvetan Popov at the University of Konstanz (Germany), MRI, MEG, and EEG studies explore compromised sensory, emotional, and cognitive processing in schizophrenia to develop cognitive treatment methods. In collaboration with Profs. Wendy Heller and Brad Sutton at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Prof. Jeff Spielberg at the University of Delaware, and Prof. Marie Banich at the University of Colorado, MRI and EEG studies explore the differentiation of depression and anxiety. I am not taking new graduate students this year.
