I am a pediatric psychologist with more than 25 years in the field. My research focuses on attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and other psychological disorders that originate in childhood.
I came to Cincinnati Children’s in 2005, where I have served as the director of the Center for ADHD. In my research, I work on developing new and innovative ways to understand, evaluate and treat ADHD. For example, my colleagues and I have developed web-based software to assist pediatricians in delivering better quality care to children with ADHD.
I was a co-investigator on the National Institutes of Mental Health-funded Multimodal Treatment Study of Children with ADHD (MTA), and I have published numerous empirical papers on a variety of ADHD-related topics. Much of my empirical research has concentrated on the neuropsychology of ADHD and the promotion of evidence-based ADHD care among community pediatricians.
In addition to my research, I’m an associate editor at the Journal of Abnormal Psychology, and I’m honored to have been elected to the Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD) Hall of Fame.
