I'm a PhD student at Duke University, and I study what is going on in people's brains when they have depression or anxiety. I also study if there are clues in the brain about whether someone is likely to become depressed or anxious in the future. I hope to use this information to help improve our current mental health treatments and develop new treatments too.

Can we make mental health diagnoses as routine as blood work?
