Broadly, I am interested in neurodevelopmental disorders and social development. More specifically, I am interested in autism specturm disorders related to screening, diagnosis, and early identification. My research focuses on understanding social attention through dynamic eye-tracking paradigms in infant siblings of children with autism. Additionally, I am a clinical research coordinator for a clinical trial involving a digestive enzyme for children with autism. I also serve as a Neurodevelopemental Technician certified to conduct Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS) and Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised (ADI-R) assessments at Banner University Medical Center in Tucson. I am a Arizona Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (AZLEND) and a Sonoran University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilties (UCEDD) trainee focused on conducting work affecting community members and individuals with a range of intellectual and developmental disabilities.
