Research Interests

My research interests are centered on cognitive development and remediation. I am conducting laboratory-based experiments mapping attentional capabilities at different periods of development using a visuo-attentive, three-dimensional multiple object-tracking (3D-MOT) paradigm. Based on the laboratory-based finding, I have designed and implemented school-based, randomized controlled trial studies to train attention with students diagnosed with a language and neurodevelopmental disorder.

Keywords: three-dimensional object tracking, development, attention, focus, feedback
