I am a postdoc in psychiatric epidemiology, with primary research interest in prenatal and early-life exposures.
My current research is focused on potential causes of ADHD (including prenatal and early-life exposures), the prevalence of ADHD over time, and the co-morbidity between ADHD and depression. I also have experience in tobacco research, where I have studied the effect of prenatal nicotine exposure on later tobacco use and dependence in adolescents and young adults.
