Her work includes characterization of biological correlates of depression, and discovery of risk markers such as neuroendocrine/neuroimmune stress response, and genetic risk markers as mediators of biological consequences of early life adverse environment. She's also conducted clinical trials of novel brain stimulation therapies (VNS, TMS, DBS) for medication-resistant depression.
