Research Interests

Atypical development, neuroimaging, neural basis of autism, pediatric sleep

Current Research

My research bridges the fields of atypical development, neuroimaging methods, and developmental sleep science. Specifically, I use secondary data analysis to examine the associations between neurobiological mechanisms of sleep and infant brain development in the context of developmental risk. I am also interested in coding for data management and analysis.
