Professional Interests

My research involves the application of functional magnetic resonance imaging to improve our understanding of the neural correlates of cognitive and behavior change, especially brain regions that encourage spontaneous novel adaptive behavior. Current research focuses on the distributed neural networks supporting approach, avoidance and escape behavior, relational learning (stimulus equivalence) and dysfunction associated with generalized anxiety disorder, depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
