A Nurse Scientist and a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, Dr. Xavier investigates the biological mechanisms of neuropsychiatric symptoms for clinical translation. A second but equally important interest is in research methodology and analysis guided by the philosophy and principles of open science. Clinically, she has a special interest in psychosis and the severely mentally ill population. Dr. Xavier is also a seasoned clinician with extensive experience working with the severely mentally ill and chemically dependent adult population in a variety of psychiatric care settings including involuntary and voluntary treatment facilities, large community hospitals, state mental health systems and outpatient psychiatry clinics.
