Dr. Torres’ research interests involve investigation of cognitive functioning in mood and psychotic disorders, with an emphasis on memory, executive, and self-regulatory functions. In particular, he is interested in understanding metacognitive skills in these mental illnesses and their impact on daily functioning. Current work also includes investigation of neuropsychological functioning in first episode bipolar disorder, changes in cognition throughout the early course of the illness, and their association with psychosocial outcomes.

What I do when I'm not working

Getting out on the basketball court as often as possible (without getting injured), taking our dog for a walk with my wife and kids, and drumming in a rock and roll band.
