My work has focused on using event-related potentials (ERPs) to study how aberrations in various neural processes contribute to the development of suicidal behavior. I am also interested in investigating the functional neural correlates of suicidal behavior, and using transcranial magnetic stimulation to manipulate these neural circuits. My current work focuses on using virtual reality paradigms to approximate suicidal behavior to study biomarkers and causes of suicide.
