Description of Interests

My primary clinical interest is in neuropsychological assessment, particularly as applied to the justice system, including issues of fitness, mitigation, risk assessment, and neuropsychological Independent Medical Evaluations (IMEs) of criminal and civil litigants. I am also interested in neuropsychological evaluation of patients with epilepsy, brain tumors, and other conditions affecting cognitive function including cerebrovascular, metabolic, autoimmune, and genetic disorders. My research focuses on investigating the neuropsychological correlates of interpersonal violence and psychopathy, as well as neurocognition in patients undergoing neurosurgical intervention.
