My primary research interests are the biological, cognitive, and interpersonal aspects of mood disorders and anxiety disorders. (Biological aspects include sex hormones, pregnancy and the postpartum period, menopause, and psychopharmacology). Other research interests include the psychometric evaluation or modification of existing scales and the development of new scales or novel assessment methodologies. Additional current research areas include problem gambling, chronic pain, mindfulness, evolutionary psychology, substance abuse, stress, and professional burnout.
