I am an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry (M.D., Ph.D.) and the Associate Director of Medical Student Education in Psychiatry at Emory University. My clinical work focuses on the treatment of mood, anxiety, and stress/trauma-related disorders in adolescents and young adults. My primary research interest is the study of the psychobiology of trauma and stress across the lifespan. In addition to the complications of trauma-related psychopathology (post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, personality disorders, and substance abuse), individuals exposed to trauma also often bear a heavy burden of stress-related medical illness including obesity, diabetes mellitus, metabolic syndrome, and cardiovascular disease. Impoverished minority populations in particular are at high risk for trauma exposure and have limited access to behavioral and medical healthcare. My current research focuses on the genetic mechanisms, environmental exposures, and stress pathobiology that contribute to risk for these disorders with particular emphasis on diabetes mellitus.
