About Me

My research falls broadly within the field of computational psychiatry, where I use both theory-driven (computational modeling of psychiatric conditions) and theory-free (advanced statistical analysis and machine learning) approaches to study heterogeneity and the computational pathophysiology of bipolar disorder (BD). To this end, I work with synthetic, genomic, neuroimaging, neuropsychological, behavioural, clinical, and interventional data. My mathematical work on heterogeneity overlaps considerably with methodological research in ecology (biodiversity), economics (wealth inequality), statistics (namely measures of agreement), and statistical physics (generalized entropies). My primary clinical interests are mood disorders and neuropsychiatric sequelae of neurological and other somatic pathologies.
