Research and teaching

Research areas

  • Mental Health
  • Learning and cognition
  • cognitive development and the effects of neurodevelopmental disorders on the brain

Research activities

I study the brain, how it develops, and how it is affected in mental health and neurodevelopmental disorders. I use functional and structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to study learning and cognition, with a focus on cognitive development and the effects of neurodevelopmental disorders on the brain. My research goals are to apply neuroimaging to better understand how developmental changes in brain architecture affect information processing, and how structural alterations, resulting from developmental disorders, lead to cognitive difficulties. I am also interested in the effects of learning and practice on brain activity, structure and behavior.
