I served as the Scientific Coordinator of the Adult ADHD Research Program at Massachusetts General Hospital. In this role, I have facilitated over 40 studies, including NIH funded projects, which have helped established the impact of ADHD, the neurobiological correlates of ADHD, and demonstrated its effective treatment with medications and therapies.  I have collaborated on family studies, imaging studies, driving simulation studies, sleep studies and neuropsychological studies.  I specialize in understanding the nature of self-regulation challenges related to ADHD – in particular, the association of ADHD with bulimia nervosa, sleep disorders, and poor control of emotional expression. From my clinical and research experience, I have developed a reputation as an expert in ADHD, and have enjoyed teaching locally and internationally on related topic. My most recent lines of investigation include attempts to develop nutraceutical interventions for ADHD, develop transcranial stimulation for self-regulation challenges, explore the cognitive basis and clinical implications of processing  deficits and sluggish cognitive tempo, and develop guidelines for management of ADHD in older adults.
