Research Interest Summary
Infant Development; Origins of Autism
My research focuses on the early development of cognitive abilities in infants and children, Currently, I am the P.I. of a research grant that is studying the cognitive abilities of individuals with autism. This research studies both infants at risk for autism as well as older children and adults who have been diagnosed with the disorder.
