Biographical Sketch 
Dr. Goodman earned his Bachelorís degree in Psychology from Appalachian State University and his Masters and PhD from Auburn Universityís Cognitive and Behavioral Sciences program. Dr. Goodman initially joined UAB as a postdoctoral fellow in the department of Psychology under the supervision of Dr. David Knight. During this time, he began working on several magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) projects designed to gain a better understanding of the neural correlates of specific processes related to emotion learning, expression, and regulation. Dr. Goodman began a second postdoctoral fellowship with Dr. Jerzy Szaflarski to broaden his training experiences with clinical populations and multi-modal neuroimaging. For his work in epilepsy, Dr. Goodman was recognized with the Young Investigator Award from the American Epilepsy Society.

Research/Clinical Interest
Neuroimaging of Stress and Seizure Disorders
Neurobiology underlying the relationship between mental health, emotion processes, and pathological states.
