    Research Profile

    Narrative of Research Interests:
    I am broadly interested in the psychobiological basis of neurodevelopmental disorders, specifically autism and fragile X syndrome. Iím interested in investigating neural and biological abnormalities in neurodevelopmental disorders, and how those abnormalities might relate to the etiology and symptomatology of these disorders.
