Professor Antshel’s research and clinical interests focus on developmental psychopathology, with specific emphasis on attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) across the lifespan. He is particularly interested in further investigating and understanding the heterogeneity of ADHD (especially ADHD in the context of autism spectrum disorder as well as medical disorders such as 22q11.2 deletion syndrome). The goal is to use information about the heterogeneity of ADHD to further explore and predict mediators and moderators of treatment outcomes. He directs the Developmental Psychopathology Clinical Research Center here at Syracuse University as well as the SUNY-Upstate Medical University ADHD Clinic.
Students interested in ADHD, comorbidity with autism spectrum disorder/medical conditions, behavioral treatment and/or social/peer relationships would be an especially good match for his lab. Initially, students will join an existing study to help gain research and clinical experience. As student’s progress in our APA accredited doctoral program, students are encouraged to develop novel research ideas to investigate. All of his students have significant opportunities to present and publish from currently recruiting studies as well as several large existing databases.
Professor Antshel can also speak to many mental health issues including anxiety, depression and living and functioning in the “new normal” of the COVID-19 pandemic.
