Research Interests

My research interests are to explore ways to predict and characterize repetitive behaviours of autism, and to understand the impact of repetitive behaviours on academic outcomes. As repetitive behaviours are considerably difficult to manage at home and at school, and are amongst the predictors of long-term adaptive functioning, I hope to determine early markers for characterizing the repetitive behaviours of school-aged children with autism and evaluate the impact of behaviours on learning and academic achievement. 


repetitive behaviours, sensory patterns, cognitive flexibility, learning, school learning.
