Current Research

Currently, I am working on a project investigating impairments in attention and arousal in neurodevelopmental disorders such as Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). I am investigating specifically in how impairments in the ability to control attention and to maintain alertness to the world impact information foraging and processing in ASD and whether these difficulties impact what individuals with ASD find salient in their environment.

Past Research

  • Information Foraging in toddlers at-risk for Autism Spectrum Disorders and/ or ADHD
  • Influence of sung speech on joint attention and responsivity in ASD
  • Metacognitive functioning in self-harming adolescents with major depression
