Research Interests

My research focuses on the relationship between social and motor deficits in autism spectrum disorder (ASD). I use behavioral and neuroimaging techniques such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to better understand how sensorimotor brain systems contribute to both social and motor deficits in ASD compared to typically developing children.
