Dr. Blanchard received his Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the State University of New York at Stony Brook (1991) . He was subsequently a predoctoral intern, postdoctoral NIMH fellow, and then faculty member at the Medical College of Pennsylvania. Following a faculty appointment at the University of New Mexico Dr. Blanchard moved to the University of Maryland, Department of Psychology, where he has been since 1999.

 

Dr. Blanchard's research has examined the reciprocal influence of emotion and interpersonal behavior to understand clinical outcomes in schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders. Currently, Dr. Blanchard is conducting an NIMH-funded study examining neural (fMRI), cognitive, and behavioral correlates of affiliative deficits in psychosis.  He recently received funding from the University of Maryland Brain and Behavior Initiative (in collaboration with Dr. Shackman and Dr. Choe) to examine neural and behavioral correlates of paranoia in psychosis.  This study will combine MRI results with smartphone and actigraphy-based assessments to provide a richer integration of neural responding and in vivo behavior.
