In that time, she has coordinated industry sponsored medication trials, investigator initiated neuromodulation trials with tES and TMS, and most recently, cognitive remediation in psychotic illness.

Research Summary/Interests

Ariel's research interests focus on cognitive remediation and cognitive behavioral therapy for adults with mental illness. She is interested to determine how neuromodulation techniques such as transcranial electrical stimulation and transcranial magnetic stimulation are able to modulate the effects of behavioral training in a way that can be adapted to clinical practice. Her primary population of interest is adults with psychotic illnesses.
