My research focuses the early identification of autism, and on the development of social abilities and regulatory capacity in young children with autism, as well as children at risk for poor social developmental outcomes. Current investigations are focused on very early indicators of risk for autism. These include studies of prenatal behavioral indictors in at risk babies, and studies of early vocal acoustics in babies at risk for or later diagnosed with autism.

I completed my PhD at University of Miami under the direction of Dr. Peter Mundy. Subsequently I completed my postdoctoral training at Brown Medical School under an NRSA fellowship. My primary research interests include the identification of very early signs of autism in infancy, the development of social communication abilities in young children with autism, and neurodevelopmental outcomes in children exposed to drugs prenatally. I have served on scientific grant review panels for Autism Speaks and the Autism Research Program through the Department of Defense, as well as reviewing grants for the National Institute on Drug Abuse and the National Science Foundation. I serve on the web page committee for the International Society for Autism Research (INSAR), as well as several local and regional advisory boards.
