Professional Summary:

Wearing many hats, my work include administrative, clinical, academic, and research responsibilities. Administratively, I oversee our department’s forensic faculty and staff, forensic programs, and the forensic psychology training program. Clinically, I (or my team) conduct psychological evaluations that address clinical and forensic questions (e.g. emotional problems, cognitive issues, risk, competency, criminal responsibility, etc). Using social-psychological-physiological methods, I help clients overcome psychological and emotional problems and optimize their performance. Academically, I teach and supervise students at all levels, with the ultimate goal of facilitating scholarly thinking and work. All students are encouraged to get involved in my research program, which focuses on the neurobiological, behavioral, and societal factors that underlie human emotions, aggression and impulsivity.
