Research synopsis: 

My research focus is on the role antidepressants in the treatment of bipolar disorder.  Other foci of research include methodological issues in psychiatric research (epidemiology), clinical studies of promising mood-stabilizing agents such as atypical antipsychotics and novel anticonvulsants and nosology/phenomenology (defining the bipolar spectrum, screening tools, lack of insight).
