Dr. Coetzee obtained his BA in Psychology from UC Berkeley, where he worked in a sleep and psychopathology lab. He then worked in a depression lab at UCSF before entering a PhD program at UCLA, where he conducted research on the relationship between language and thought under the guidance of Dr. Martin Monti.
After completing his doctorate in Cognitive Neuroscience, he returned to the Bay Area where he currently is a postdoctoral researcher the Brain Stimulation Lab, where he is developing new treatments for depression, and at the Palo Alto VA in the lab of Dr. Maheen Adamson, where he is developing new treatments for traumatic brain injury. In both labs, Dr. Coetzee's focus is on utilizing novel brain stimulation techniques to probe and modulate the neural networks underlying neuropsychiatric diseases/disorders, in order to develop new models and treatments.
Dr. Coetzee is involved in several active studies involving conditions such as posttraumatic headache, treatment-resistant depression, chronic pain, suicidal ideation, and obsessive-compulsive disorder, utilizing techniques such as theta-burst stimulation, low intensity focused ultrasound, brain age estimation algorithms, heart rate variability, and digital neurocognitive assessment of psychopathology.
