WELCOME

I am an Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychiatry at Columbia University, where I teach and work on topics related to psychiatry, law, ethics, neuroscience, and society.

I also have a private psychiatry practice, primarily focused on substance use problems and other addictive behaviors, with offices in downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn.

You can find me on Twitter, and see my recent writing for the public here:
