Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Alcohol Use Disorder, Resilience, Empirically Supported Treatments for PTSD
My program of research centers on the characterization of biologic, genetic, and psychosocial underpinnings of the effects of trauma, primarily post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), alcohol use disorder (AUD), and related processes such as fear conditioning, extinction, and generalization. The long-term goal of this work is the characterization of underlying processes involved in the comorbidity and maintenance of these phenotypes in order to inform upon and support translation into clinically meaningful findings.
