Research Interests

I am interested in the foundations of social language development, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) assessment and diagnosis, and the intersection of language and social communication.  As a speech-language pathologist, I participate in a multidisciplinary assessment clinic for ASD at the Child Development & Rehabilitation Center.  My current research projects include utilizing a general social-emotional screener as an ASD specific tool, investigating the developmental trajectories of children born prematurely, and developing an automated, voice-based assessment of children’s language abilities.  My work draws upon a background in linguistics, psychology, speech and hearing science, special education, and pediatric healthcare.
