Research Focus

My research focuses on the understanding the underlying mechanisms of function and dysfunction in children with neurodevelopmental disorders. To do so, I use a multidisciplinary research approach and combine advanced quantitative Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) techniques with clinically relevant standardized evaluations to promote early detection of non-optimal brain and/or functional development in at-risk pediatric populations.
