My long-term goal is to improve the lives of children, adolescents, and adults by elucidating various brain, mind, and psychiatric states, focusing mostly on drug abuse and drug dependency. In the service of this mission I apply bioengineering principles to psychiatry in order to develop more objective diagnoses and more effective treatment regimens.
I have taken the lead in the design of experiments and the data analysis stream for a number of functional MRI projects. Because olfactory stimuli are particularly salient, I have included them in many of these experiments, designing MRI-compatible olfactometers to deliver odors in the magnet. I also develop computer-based testing for attention deficit / hyperactivity disorder, and perform fractal analysis of human eye motion patterns.
