Dr. Kernberg is a psychoanalyst and professor of psychiatry at Weill Medical College of Cornell University.

He is most widely known for his psychoanalytic theories on borderline personality organization and narcissistic pathology. In addition, Dr. Kernberg's work has been central in integrating postwar ego psychology (which was primarily developed in the United States and England) with Kleinian object relations (which was developed primarily in continental Europe and South America).

Dr. Kernberg's integrative writings were central to the development of modern object relations, a theory of mind that is perhaps the theory most widely accepted among modern psychoanalysts.
