Overview

Research Description

My work specializes in neuroimaging research in a variety of neurodevelopmental disorders and neurodegenerative diseases, as well as in normal development and aging. I have conducted studies using structural and functional MRI, and have participated in research using magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI).
Neuroimaging studies in the past have involved participants with autism spectrum disorders, learning disabilities, fetal alcohol spectrum disorders, HIV dementia, Huntington's disease, Down syndrome, and other disorders.
