He completed his clinical internship at the Institute for Juvenile Research, Department of Psychiatry, University of Illinois at Chicago and then a two-year Postdoctoral Fellowship in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. His research interests focus primarily on the development of effective, engaging, and efficient prevention, intervention and service delivery models for youth at-risk for or affected with Disruptive Behavior Disorders.
The goal of research conducted in this lab is to understand how best to develop effective, engaging, and efficient prevention, intervention, and service delivery models for youth at high-risk for and those affected with Disruptive Behavior Disorders (i.e., Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Oppositional-Defiant Disorder, and/or Conduct Disorder) and related conditions. An important focus is on children that are considered at heightened risk for poor outcomes owing to the presence of multiple contextual, familial, and inter/intrapersonal risk factors.
