Research Interests

My research interests centered the perceptual and cognitive correlates of, and their relationships in individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). A wealth of evidence shows that individuals with ASD demonstrate heightened local perceptual functioning and cognitive fixations, as well as diminished global perception and cognitive integration. Hence, I aim to further investigate these unique perceptual and cognitive correlates in ASD and delineate a framework that marries both correlates.
