My clinical expertise is in the diagnosis and assessment (including neuropsychological evaluation) of children and young adults with neurodevelopmental disorders. My scholarly interests and expertise are in child development and developmental psychopathology, particularly brain-behavior relationships in developmental disorders. My research is aimed at defining the brain bases of social-communicative dysfunction as well as special abilities in autism spectrum disorder as a way of elucidating differences in brain architecture in autism. I use multiple methodologies to investigate neurocognitive function in autism, including computerized measures of behavioral response time, eye-tracking, and magnetic resonance imaging.
