My research is primarily focused on the role of inflammation in psychiatric disorders. As a research assistant for the Insight study, I am particularly interested in the relationship between the immune system and depression. This research is currently examining the effect of immune-modulating drugs on mood and cognition in patients diagnosed with major depressive disorder.
Before joining the InPsych research group, I worked at Boston University School of Medicine researching Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy and Alzheimer's disease.
