Halperin, Ph.D. is a Distinguished Professor of Psychology at Queens College and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York (CUNY), serves on the faculty of the Ph.D. Programs in Clinical Psychology and Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience, and is a Professorial Lecturer at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
For more than three decades Professor Halperin has conducted research focusing on neuropsychiatric disorders that emerge in childhood.  By integrating clinical, neuropsychological and neurobiological approaches within the context of longitudinal designs, he studies factors that influence behavioral trajectories and psychiatric outcomes of children with ADHD and related behavioral problems.  He has examined an array environmental factors that influence outcome, has employed neuroimaging procedures to examine differences in brain function between children whose symptoms and maladaptive behaviors do and do not persist into adulthood, and has been working on the development of novel non-medication interventions for preschool children at risk for developing ADHD with the hope of preventing or diminishing the severity of later behavioral and cognitive difficulties.

Dr. Halperin has served on the editorial boards of several scientific journals, is currently Joint Editor for the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry, and has been a member of multiple NIH study sections and grant review panels.  Throughout his career he has served as a teacher, clinician and researcher.  He has mentored more than 30 students through the completion of their Ph.D. in Psychology, has published 170 articles in peer reviewed journals along with numerous book chapters, and had his research supported by the National Institutes of Health for more than 25 years.
