My program of research focuses on the psychobiology and psychopharmacologic treatment of those with psychiatric disorders, with an emphasis on major mood disorders. I have more than 60 peer-reviewed publications and book chapters in journals that focus on circadian rhythms, seasonal affective disorder in both children and adults, and clinical trials of psychiatric medications and light therapy.
