I received my PhD in clinical psychology from McGill, where I studied brain function in clinical populations and healthy controls.  My particular focus was on dopamine system function and executive functions in attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).  I then coordinated the adult ADHD clinical and research program at the McGill University Health Centre and worked on a clinical trial of cogntive behavioural therapy in adult ADHD patients, while also providing evaluations and treatment for adults with ADHD in private practice.  In 2014, I joined UBC for a postdoctoral fellowship with Dr. Jon Stoessl.
