My clinical and research interests are related to forensic neuropsychiatry. I am involved in the deep brain stimulation projects for movement disorders such as Tourette syndrome, Parkinson disease and essential tremor, and for psychiatric disturbances such as obsessive-compulsive disorder and depression. Bedside neuropsychiatric testing is an important part of my work in both outpatient and clinical settings. My forensic work includes both civil and criminal issues and the proper use of neuroscience principles and technologies as evidence offered in the courtroom. I am also active in the institutional review board with a special interest in the protection of vulnerable subjects and the ethical recruitment and management of such subjects with cognitive and psychiatric disorders. Although I do not have a traditional laboratory program, I am available to neuroscience students for consultation in these important areas.
