Research Interests

My doctoral research explores visual attention in individuals with autism spectrum disorder. Specifically, I am measuring the impact of cognitive load and feedback on attention using a three-dimensional multiple object tracking task.
Other research interests of mine include music perception and cognition, language development, and paediatric psychology.
Keywords: autism, cognitive neuroscience, development, attention
