 Research Expertise & Professional Interests
My research goal is to identify biomarkers of behavioral risk or resilience in newborns. We use multimodal brain imaging in newborns and ‘omics’ data collection in mothers, fathers and newborns. Clinically, we aim to establish individualized treatment modalities for mothers and early interventions for children at risk.
