Research synopsis

My research focus is on the role antidepressants in the treatment of bipolar disorder.  Other foci of research include methodological issues in psychiatric research (epidemiology), clinical studies of promising mood-stabilizing agents such as atypical antipsychotics and novel anticonvulsants and nosology/phenomenology (defining the bipolar spectrum, screening tools, lack of insight).
