Neurodevelopmental disorders with a special focus on autism spectrum disorder, and parenting-at-risk (e.g., maternal incarceration, substance use problems, maternal history of trauma and mental illness).

Profile

Broadly, I am involved in two lines of research: (1) neurodevelopmental disorders with a special focus on autism spectrum disorder, and (2) parenting-at-risk (e.g., maternal incarceration, substance use problems, maternal history of trauma and mental illness).

On the topic of autism, I am working on designing and evaluating an innovative intervention to reduce social anxiety and improve social/vocational skills in adolescents with autism; the intervention utilizes a shared interest in robotics among participants to facilitate natural social interaction.  I am also conducting a series of research studies that involve secondary data analyses of national longitudinal studies (NLTS2, SEELS, and NEILS).  The primary aim of these studies is to better understand patterns and predictors of adult outcomes, co-morbidities, and effective interventions in autism, ADHD, and learning disorders.

On the topic of parenting-at-risk, I am evaluating the effectiveness of prison nurseries at decreasing recidivism and improving the attachment relationship between incarcerated mothers and their babies.
