I am an Associate Professor of Clinical Psychology in the Department of Psychology at the University of Otago, which is located in Dunedin, New Zealand. I am also an Associate Editor for the journals Psychological Assessment and Journal of Personality Disorders. In addition, I also operate a small consulting practice, which offers forensic psychological evaluations, psychometric and statistical consultation, and workshops in personality assessment and statistics.
I am Professor and Chair of the Department of Psychology at the University of Toledo. I also co-direct the Personality and Emotion Research and Treatment (PERT) Laboratory. My laboratory and treatment outcome research focuses on the role of emotion dysregulation in the pathogenesis and treatment of borderline personality disorder (BPD), self-injury, and other risky behaviors (including suicidal behaviors, substance use, and risky sexual behaviors). In particular, my research focuses on understanding the nature and consequences of emotion dysregulation in these conditions (through the use of novel behavioral/experimental paradigms), and applying this understanding to the development of more effective treatments.
