    Collapse Overview
    My research focuses on early identification and intervention in schizophrenia. This includes identifying risk factors for developing psychosis, diagnosing prodromal psychosis, and testing novel interventions for early psychosis. In addition, I have developed evidence-based treatment programs for early psychosis through community-academic partnerships.
