My researc interests is in the relationship between symptomatic distress and functional impairment in adults with ADHD. I'm also interested in the significance of psychological treatment in these individuals.
I am currently working on a controlled prospective multisite study of a psychoeducative group intervention for adults with ADHD.
I am also involved in several other research projects related to adult psychiatry
