My primary research interest is in interventions for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and their families. As ASD awareness and the diagnosis of the disorder have grown, so has the demand for efficacious treatment. I hope to contribute to this area by developing new interventions and by examining what current interventions work best, why their interventions work, and how we can optimize these interventions.
