Research Overview

My research interests are broadly related to furthering our understanding of the neurocognitive and social-emotional bases of autism spectrum disorders.  More specifically, I am interested in exploring how children and adolescents with autism both express and perceive non-verbal emotional cues (e.g., facial expressions), as well as how differences in the expression and/or perception of emotions may affect interpersonal synchrony and intersubjectivity within social interactions.
