My primary research interests are focused on the neurology underlying the behavior of children with autism spectrum disorders. More specifically, I am interested in utilizing neuroimaging and eye-tracking techniques to better describe the cognitive styles of those with ASD as well as to explore predictors for responsiveness to intervention.
