Clinical Interests/Program Development:
Brain Stimulation (TMS and DBS)
Traumatic Brain Injury

Dr. Siddiqi completed his psychiatry residency at Washington University, St. Louis.  He joined BIDMC to complete his Neuropsychiatry Fellowship and the Sidney R. Baer, Jr. Foundational Fellowship in Clinical Neurosciences.

Research Interests:
My research is focused on developing better methods for individualizing these neuromodulatory treatments based on functional MRI (fMRI) and clinical phenomenology. During residency, I was involved in several projects to investigate predictors of response to brain stimulation based on both clinical factors and computational analysis of brain imaging data. This culminated in a randomized-controlled trial of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) targeted with individualized brain network mapping for depression associated with traumatic brain injury. I also started a group called the Midnight Modulation Club, which studied causal relationships in the brain by stimulating different brain targets and mapping the immediate effects of that stimulation.

Personal Interests/Hobbies:
Spending time writing, playing guitar, or playing chess.
