Personal Statement

I study the variability in the development of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). My research contributes to the identification of the genetic basis of ASDs and to the development of more accurate prognoses and interventions. Currently, I am developing methods to analyze social skills and language comprehension in children with limited abilities to communicate. In these studies, I use eye-tracking and other technologies to measure the responses of children to real-time 3-D graphics. I also use various statistical methods to analyze patterns of development in children with ASDs.
