Research interests

I am also Mental Health Patient Care Center Director at the James J. Peters VA Medical Center in New York and Director of the Traumatic Stress Studies Division at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.

My research on cortisol and brain function has contributed to the understanding and treatment of PTSD worldwide. I was awarded the Max Planck Institute for Psychiatry (Munich, Germany) 2004 Guest Professorship. I am interested in what causes psychiatric disorders over time.
