Research Interest

 His primary interest and research focus lies in investigating the psychosocial and neurobiological mechanisms underlying symptom improvement in psychotherapeutic and pharmacological interventions for depression, in particular Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT). Despite the large body of outcome research attesting to the efficacy of CBT for depression, strikingly little is known about how and why patients improve during treatment. An understanding of the “active ingredients” and mechanisms of therapeutic change in depression treatment, including CBT, is critical. More specifically, such knowledge can ultimately be used to maximize the efficacy and efficiency of treatments, while minimizing, or ideally eliminating, any inert or iatrogenic elements. In addition, he is also interested in understanding the etiology and pathophysiology of depression, as well as the low-cost, web-based dissemination of empirically supported treatments for depression and anxiety.
