As a developmental psychologist, I study the development of core symptoms and comorbid problems in children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). I conduct empirical studies and secondary data analyses to better understand the mechanisms underlying both social and health-related difficulties in this population. My current research focuses on defining and quantifying the language phenotype in ASD, analyzing the prevalence and factors associated with overweight and obesity in children with ASD, and understanding the epidemiology of ASDs.
