Research Interests

Cognitive neuroscience; Social neuroscience; autism spectrum disorders; social perception; eye tracking; brain connectivity; functional MRI

My research focuses on the neural and cognitive mechanisms underlying human social behavior, and how these mechanisms break down in individuals with autism -- a neurodevelopmental disorder that features impaired social functioning. Research methods include eye tracking, functional neuroimaging, and behavioral and cognitive testing, and study populations include healthy children and adults, individuals with autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders, and patients with localized brain lesions.
