Personal profile

Research interests

As psychiatrist my main focus in clinical work is neuropsychiatry with specific focus on the neuropsychiatric disorders in Parkinson's disease. My research focuses on the mechanisms underlying cognitive, emotional and behavioral disturbances in both mental disorders (e.g. obsessive-compulsive disorder and related anxiety and neurodevelopmental disorders) and neurological disorders (e.g. Parkinson's disease). Translation between bed and bench is central to understand psychopathology and to develop innovative treatments.
